North Oaks Medical Center to Hold Annual NICU Reunion

Former patients of North Oaks Medical Center’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and their families are invited to catch up with their caregivers at the NICU Reunion on Saturday, Dec. 7. The annual event will take place from 9-11 a.m. in the E. Brent Dufreche Conference Center, located within North Oaks Diagnostic Center at 15813 Paul Vega, MD, Drive in Hammond.

To sign up for the event, call the North Oaks Special Events Line at (985) 230-2255 or (225) 686-4897 between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. on weekdays.

The reunion will feature traditional favorites, including photos with Santa Claus for the children, refreshments and holiday activities.

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 become close friends. 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.
