“Hugs” Visits Asante’s Neonatal Unit
“Hugs From Heaven” visited the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center today to deliver 25 bags of clothes and goodies for the region’s littlest babies. The holiday bags were made possible by donations from the community and they were organized by Hannah Joseph.
“Hugs” was founded by Hannah in memory of her grandmother, Mary Annette Bueoy, who wanted to be an Asante “cuddler”, but passed away before she was able to join.
The neonatal intensive care unit is the only level III-B unit in the region equipped to care for premature babies with weights as low as one pound, or with high risk medical conditions at birth.
