Happy Valentine’s Day!

Today is Valentine’s Day – a day to recognize those we love and do a little something extra special to express our feelings. The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit celebrated with their little Bundles of Love by donning extra cute, Valentine’s Day themed outfits, blankets, and candy hearts.

What an excellent time to express our LOVE for all of our team members. We cannot thank you enough for the special care and love you show each other and our patients on a daily basis.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
