Cary Hospital Celebrates Special Care Nursery Reunion
On Sunday, May 22, babies and their families shared experiences, refreshments and fun at the annual WakeMed Cary Hospital Special Care Nursery reunion. More than 40 families attended this annual reunion.
During the event, which took place from 1 to 4 pm, families celebrated the births of their babies who were born in the Level II Special Care Nursery, which was added to the Cary Hospital campus in the summer of 2002. The special care nursery allows for higher risk deliveries at WakeMed Cary Hospital, caring for babies born at 32 weeks above.
The WakeMed Women’s Pavilion & Birthplace – Cary is western Wake County’s only birthplace. The private suites for labor, delivery and recovery feature a shower and tub with whirlpool jets for hydrotherapy during labor. There also is a sleep chair in the mother’s room for dad or support persons. Each room includes a small refrigerator, VCR/television and a separate telephone line with Internet connection for personal laptops.
WakeMed, a private, not-for-profit healthcare system, is the Triangle’s largest medical center with 752 beds.
