“Our family had an unexpected 11-week journey in Randall Children’s Hospital Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) with the birth of our twin daughters at just 27 weeks gestational age. From the moment it was determined they would be delivered, until the day we were discharged, our team of doctors and nurses were committed to providing expert level care and supporting our family through this difficult time.”
     - The Malsam Family

“During our seven weeks in the NICU, Ned was seen by dozens of specialists, physicians and expert nurses. We felt so fortunate to be at Randall Children’s Hospital at Legacy Emanuel, where we could stay with him while he healed. It meant so much to us as first time parents to be able to help care of him and comfort him at any time, day or night. As his parents, we felt incredibly support and empowered along the way by the NICU team – not only did they take care of our baby, they took care of us. We are so very grateful for all their knowledge, care, and compassion that helped our family through that difficult time.”
