Mathew, Michael and Morgan were born at just 29 weeks. Luckily, we live in the Mahoning Valley and have access to one of the best NICU’s around.
They spent 68, 73 and 77 days in Akron Children’s NICU at St Elizabeth’s and the special care nursery at Beeghly. They had many of the common “preemie” problems and received the most amazing care.
The staff is wonderful and treated my little miracles as if they were their own. They treated my husband and I the same way, like family.
Our pediatrician, specialists and therapists are all part of Akron Children’s and I wouldn’t have it any other way. We are blessed to have a children’s hospital so close to home with an emergency department that is top-notch.
I am involved in the hospital’s Mahoning Valley Parent Advisory Council and the NICU FACT Group and try to give back in any way I can. I am forever grateful to Akron Children’s Hospital for saving my 3 precious babies and helping them to thrive and grow.
Thank you Akron Children’s Hospital Mahoning Valley!
