While opportunities to help improve patient care exist in nearly every department of the hospital, the current initiative with the greatest need is part of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and Labor & Delivery Department expansion. St. Mary’s newly renovated, state-of-the-art NICU features private bays, a private lactation room, and a family sleeping room, all designed to meet the needs of families with babies requiring special care. Labor & Delivery renovations are ongoing with an expected completion date of Winter, 2016.
Cancer care is an equally urgent initiative here at St. Mary. The Infusion Center expansion is on the calendar and new fundraising efforts will benefit this undertaking.
