NICU Reunion Scheduled Dec. 5 Helps Families Celebrate their Children's Milestones

Graduates of the North Oaks Medical Center Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and their families are invited to a Reunion scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 5 from 9-11 a.m. To RSVP, register online here. You also may call the North Oaks Special Events Line at (985) 230-2255 or (225) 686-4897.

The reunion will take place in theE. Brent Dufreche Conference Center, located within North Oaks Diagnostic Center at 15837 Paul Vega, MD, Drive in Hammond, Louisiana. Face painting, pictures with Santa, craft-making and storytelling are among planned activities at the family-oriented celebration. Light refreshments also will be served.

NICUs are hospital units that care for babies who are born early or have serious illnesses. While the babies are in the hospital, families and the hospital staff often form strong bonds. North Oaks Medical Center has operated an NICU since 1991.

Each year, North Oaks invites families who have made the journey through the hospital’s NICU to attend the reunion to celebrate their children’s successes, reconnect with the hospital staff and visit with other NICU families.
