Preemies reunite at University of Colorado Hospital

By Staff

The University of Colorado Hospital recently held its 25th annual reunion for the families of children who were born prematurely and received care in the neonatal intensive care unit, or the NICU.

The families gather each year to celebrate the lives of their children, reuniting with physicians, nurses and others who cared for their babies and helped them weather the challenges of nursing a preemie before they go home to begin their new lives in good health.

About 100 families participated in this year's silver anniversary celebration on Aug. 1, including babies, toddlers, children and young adults who all graduated from the NICU after birth.
