Sinai Hospital Hosts NICU Reunion

The Jennifer Gandel Kachura Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is more than a unit at Sinai Hospital: it's also a place where families find hope during a difficult time.

The 21-bed unit handles a full range of medical problems of premature and critically ill newborns. Most premature babies stay in the hospital until their due date. When the NICU newborns do go home, many families stay in touch with the staff.

That's why on Sunday, 70 families will revisit Sinai Hospital's Zamoiski Auditorium for a NICU reunion. The event will run from 1 to 4 p.m.

The children will enjoy games and adults can catch up with NICU staff, all the while celebrating how far their babies have come. The event will also feature a slide show of the NICU graduates.
