Nov. 16, 2012 - PRLog -- [HAMMOND, La.]— Former patients of North Oaks Medical Center’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (http://www.northoaks.org/medical_center/neonatal_intensive_care_unit.aspx) (NICU) and their families will be catching up with their caregivers at the NICU Reunion on Saturday, Dec. 1. The annual event will take place from 9-11 a.m. in the E. Brent Dufreche Conference Center, located within North Oaks Diagnostic Center at 15813 Paul Vega, MD, Drive in Hammond.

“The North Pole called to tell us that Santa Claus and his elves will attend the NICU Reunion! Santa is looking forward to taking photos with the children and listening to their Christmas wishes,” shares Kirsten Constantino, Assistant Vice President of Patient Services for North Oaks Medical Center. Snacks and holiday activities also will be part of the fun.

NICUs are hospital units that care for babies who are born too early or have serious illnesses. While the babies are in the hospital families and hospital staff often become close friends. The NICU Reunion brings the NICU "graduates," their families and the hospital staff together again to celebrate each child.

North Oaks Medical Center opened its NICU in 1991. The unit is ranked in  the top 25 percent in the U.S., by the  Vermont Oxford Study.
