NICUs are hospital units that care for babies who are born too early or
have serious illnesses. While the babies are in the hospital, families
and hospital staff often form a strong bond. The NICU Reunion brings the
NICU "graduates," their families and the hospital staff together
again to celebrate each child.
North Oaks Medical Center opened its NICU in 1991.
