PREEMIE FOR A DAY - 2008
Led by a team of clinically active professionals with a variety of NICU backgrounds, his interactive, multisensory training allows participants to experience an infant’s journey, from birth through admission, and the opportunity to practice developmentally supportive care throughout their stay. Participants not only learn and discuss ways to improve the care and outcomes for their tiniest patients, but also actually experience the reasons for approaching care in a developmentally supportive manner.
WALL OF HOPE- 2013
The Walls of Hope display is a $10,000 project featuring pictures of former NICU patients at their sickest alongside photographs of them now, as healthy babies, toddlers and children. The purpose of the renovation is to inspire families of current patients to have hope for their child.
KANGAROO CHAIRS- 2009-2012
The Kangaroo Chair was designed to
support Kangaroo care, and to improve
the NICU experience for parents and
Newborns. The Kangaroo is all about
comfort, support and safety. Its wide
back supports mother and the baby as
they turn from side to side. The chair
locks in all of its reclined positions so
there is no sudden movement that
would be startling and potentially
dangerous. It is a chair that embraces
you and your newborn, so that you can
focus on the nurturing of your little one.
WOLF PARK- 2013-PRESENT
In the planning stages is the new Wolf Park at Memorial Hermann The Woodlands Hospital – in a courtyard off Medical Plaza Drive in front of Medical Plaza 1, near the Neonatal ICU and Family Birth Center. Wolf Park will be secure and fenced with access through the hospital. The park, which was part of the 2014 Employee Campaign, will feature a playground, picnic tables, lighting and more over time.
