The most advanced technology helps save the most vulnerable.
For more than 50 years, Providence Holy Cross Medical Center’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) has been saving the lives of precious newborns. As the only medical center offering a Level III NICU in the San Fernando and Santa Clarita Valleys, it is almost always at or close to capacity. Now, thanks to the vision, leadership and generosity of donors, the $6.4 million Little Miracles modernization campaign is about to become a reality.
Because of the campaign’s amazing success, construction will begin this summer. The NICU will expand by 50%, increasing the number of incubators from twelve to eighteen, and making many modern improvements to our technology. For instance, the NICU at Providence Holy Cross will have state-of-the art Giraffe Omnibed technology for the first time. These specialized beds provide infants with a combination of an incubator, radiant warmer and protective bed all in one. The Omnibeds will also have the NICView Webcam System so parents can see their precious newborn day or night.
The NICU will also now have ventilators and oscillators designed specifically to treat premature and newborn infants. The Timeless Breast Milk Barcoding System will allow the NICU to take a major step forward in the proper collection, storage and distribution of breast milk.
These life-saving advances would not have been possible without the unwavering support of our community of donors. Through your generosity, Providence Holy Cross is improving lives, keeping families together and providing better outcomes for our most vulnerable patients.
Although the Little Miracles campaign has reached its goal, you can continue to donate to the initiative by visiting supportholycross.org/donate.
Together, we can provide care that transforms lives, now and for years to come.
