26th Annual NICU Birthday Celebration: Babies are delicate and require extra care when problems arise, especially newborns. Each year, the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Coliseum Medical Centers gives that necessary extra care to hundreds of babies including those who are premature and born with illness or complications. This year the NICU unit will hold its 26th Annual Birthday Party to celebrate the lives of the many children who have passed through our doors. The event is open to young patients, their parents and siblings. This year the event will take place on Saturday, August 16, 2014 from 12:00 Noon to 4:00 p.m. at Central City Park, Shed #2. In addition to food and prizes there will also be a waterslide so don't forget to bring some extra clothes. For more information call (478) 765-4132.

We would like to extend a special invitation to the media to join us for this special celebration of our NICU patients and their families.
