Proceeds from this reception will support the 2019 Geno Auriemma’s Fore the Kids Tournament funding priorities – the purchase of two important pieces of equipment for Connecticut Children’s:
- Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) new transport isolette, which is a self-contained, high-performance transport incubator. As a Level IV NICU, the highest level trauma certification, the Medical Center treats the sickest infants in the region. Last year more than 300 newborns required transportion to Connecticut Children’s from regional hospitals. This new isolette will enhance the care we provide to these tiny patients on their way to Connecticut Children’s.
- Highly specialized Spinal Surgery Table for patients undergoing complex spine surgeries. Surgeons can more easily position, rotate and stabilize the patients using this highly specialized device. This equipment will bring next-level care and positive outcomes to children with spinal issues and deformities.
