We are thankful to everyone who came out to In the NIC of Time at the Fillmore on May 29, benefiting the Cottie & Cake Fund at Levine Children’s Hospital. More than 200 attendees gathered for the annual event, which raises funds to benefit the neonatology program at Levine Children’s Hospital, and has helped the department achieve recognition as one of the top 50 in the world, according to US News & World Report.
This year, the fund will support a new initiative at Levine Children’s Hospital, the NicView Webcam System (shown above and below). Each isolette in the Neonatal Intensive Care Nursery will have its own mounted webcam in order to give parents secure, real-time viewing of their infant while away from the hospital. A free service to patients and their families, this offers peace of mind and alleviates some of the anxiety and stress parents experience with a newborn in the hospital.
