Santa was spotted at Sparrow Hospital visiting with some newborn babies!
There’s nothing quite like spending time in Mid-Michigan's Regional Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, home to Sparrow’s premature and ill newborns. Santa himself stopped by Tuesday December 19th to visit the babies and their families, who needed a holiday pick-me-up. The smallest Patients at Sparrow got that visit from St. Nick himself as Santa Claus spread holiday cheer at the Sparrow Regional Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
Just 6 days before Christmas Santa visited the prematurely born infants in their incubators and welcomed parents in a touching event which you can see from the video shared below!
The holidays can be a difficult time for any parent (or sibling) with a baby in the RNICU, so Santa made sure to take the time to pose for photos with their brothers and sisters and listen to their holiday wishes.
The nationally recognized Sparrow RNICU provides care for nearly 600 acutely ill infants a year from throughout mid-Michigan, offering around-the-clock supervision of premature newborns and sick full-term babies.
