HCA Florida Brandon Hospital Women's and Babies' Services team makes $8k donation to March of Dimes
BRANDON, Fla. (July 28, 2023) - Hundreds of babies are born at HCA Florida Brandon Hospital each month. Most babies are born healthy and strong, getting to go home with their families within a couple days. But many babies don’t. Some babies are born preterm, or with a number of health issues that require an extended stay in Brandon Hospital’s Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Born healthy or born with obstacles ahead, every baby inspires the Brandon Hospital team to give back. The Women’s and Babies’ Services team’s goal was to raise more than ever this year for March of Dimes and they did it by raising $8,745.50.
“We see the need every day. We see so many babies, who need just a little more help. That’s help that we know March of Dimes can bring to moms and babies across our area,” said Shannon Vanek, Assistant Chief Nursing Officer at HCA Florida Brandon Hospital. “From providing access to prenatal care or leading research in efforts that’ll give families the best outcomes, we know March of Dimes makes a big impact for our littlest patients. And being a part of that effort is something our team is proud of every single day.”
The Brandon Hospital team will celebrate the donation at the March of Dimes 2023 Tampa March for Babies Awards Celebration on August 8.
