‘No Place Like Home’ for the NICU’s Annual Reunion

Baptist Women’s Hospital recently held its annual neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) reunion. More than 450 people, including 200 NICU “graduates,” attended the event.

This year’s theme was “Wizard of Oz.” Grads took photos with “Wizard of Oz” characters and Dorothy’s house, designed and built by Shannon Rister, an RN in the NICU. The kids also enjoyed outdoor activities, including a petting zoo and bounce house.

Physicians and nurses reunited with their former patients and their families, getting updates on their lives and health. The Baptist Memorial Health Care Foundation funds this annual event.
