One of the first lessons of parenting is to expect the unexpected. When planning for the arrival of a new baby, you probably don’t anticipate needing a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). However, if your baby is born prematurely or develops any complications after birth, comprehensive care is vital. Here’s why you should choose a hospital with a NICU.
About the Deborah F. Sager Memorial Fund
Families count the days until their baby arrives, but what if that day comes too soon or with complications?
The Deborah F. Sager Memorial Fund was formed after the tragic passing of Deborah Felisse Sager in 1978 with the net proceeds ($150,000) of the former Newcomb Hospital Horse Shows and the Atlantic City International Equestrian Festival from 1978-82. In support of the neonatal and pediatric departments, the DFSMF has raised more than $700,000 since 2012, allowing the Fund to continue to support the vital needs of children. Today, the DFSMF supports Inspira’s neonatal and pediatric units and enhances the delivery of high-quality life-saving care to infants in Southern New Jersey.
You can be a part of the DFSMF story and give preemies in our area a fighting chance at life.
