Support NICU Families in Need
Thank you for supporting NICU families in need at Seton Medical Center Austin.
The Marialice Shivers Regional Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Seton has been caring for critically ill newborns for 40 years — longer than anyone in Central Texas. Our Level III NICU is staffed by physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses and respiratory therapists who are specially trained to provide expert critical care, support and compassion to our smallest and most fragile patients, such as babies born prematurely or infants who show signs of illness within the first few days of birth.
Your gift will help update or create more comfortable rooming-in and nesting rooms for families whose babies are being cared for in the NICU.
Nesting rooms make it possible for families to stay near their babies who must remain in the NICU for treatment. Rooming-in rooms provide privacy for families preparing to go home from the NICU or for cherishing the final moments of their babies' lives.
The birth of a critically ill baby is often unexpected and can create unique stress for families. Our nesting and rooming-in rooms help make every moment with their newborn a precious gift.
Your generous donation helps to provide that gift to our NICU families in need. Thank you for your support.
All gifts made will benefit building and equipment needs for neonatal rooming-in and nesting rooms at Seton Medical Center Austin to directly provide for families in need.
