NICU Reunion Celebrates Special Connections

Howard County General Hospital’s 17th Annual Neonatal Intensive Care Unit Reunion

Ten Oaks Ballroom
5000 Signal Bell Lane
Clarksville, MD

Sunday, October 14, 2007
2 to 5 p.m.

In a special tradition, graduates of the Howard County General Hospital Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) are gathering to reunite and celebrate with the staff members who cared for them during the earliest days of their fragile young lives. Hundreds of NICU grads are expected to attend this festive party that includes dancing, face painting, arts and crafts and a magic show.

Since Howard County General Hospital opened its Special Care Nursery in 1990, more than 5,400 special patients have “graduated.” Although the unit has kept pace with the constantly improving and advancing technology, thus growing into a Level III+ NICU, the care and compassion of the staff has remained constant.

Howard County General Hospital: A Member of Johns Hopkins Medicine is a 219-bed, not-for-profit, health care provider located in Columbia, Maryland. Serving the community since 1973, the hospital, with a professional staff of more than 800 physicians and allied health professionals representing over 70 medical specialties and sub-specialties and a workforce of more than 1,700, has grown into a comprehensive, acute-care medical center that treats a full range of conditions from neonatal care to oncology and outpatient care to critical care.
