LITTLE ROCK, AR -- A reunion for former preemies, doctors and staff from UAMS was held Sunday.
The former patients of the University of Arkansas For Medical Sciences Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and their families gathered at the Scimitar Shrine Building in Little Rock to celebrate the bond they formed while in the hospital.
Alexandra Warner, an RN in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at UAMS shares her thoughts on the importance of keeping in touch.
"We grow really attached to these families when they're at the NICU so it's really important to be able to see them and how they grow and see how healthy they are," Warner says.
The NICU at UAMS is a place where trained healthcare professionals come together with advanced technology to provide specialized treatment for the tiniest of patients.
UAMS says it averages more than 1,500 admissions each year and has survival rates among the best in the nation.
