NICU celebrates 20th birthday
The BIDMC Klarman Family NICU celebrated its 20th Anniversary recently with a special reunion, bringing together NICU "graduates" like Anthony, their families, and the nurses, doctors and staff who took care of them.
"It was a wonderful celebration and a tremendous opportunity to renew ties with families," said DeWayne Pursley, MD, BIDMC's Chief of Neonatology. "Seeing these thriving children was also a source of great affirmation for the staff. Just the inspiration we need as we work hard to continuously improve, looking toward the next 20 years."
More than 1,300 guests turned out for the western-themed "NICU Round-Up." Families and staff were treated to a fun-filled day at Kimball Farm in Westford. As families and staff re-connected, unlimited ice cream and family-friendly activities such as mini-golf, bumper boats, bounce houses, lawn games, driving range, batting cages, volleyball, and face painting provided plenty of fun for kids (and adults) of all ages. Mother Nature provided a beautiful fall day with plenty of sunshine!
