Born at just 29 weeks, Lillian Jane, is the youngest patient cared for in HMH’s Level II Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). At birth, she weighed just 2 pounds, 7 ounces and was a mere 14 inches long. Despite being very small, Lilly was a fighter.
While in the NICU, HMH’s highly trained staff provided essential care – helping Lilly grow stronger and gain weight.
Lilly’s mom, Melissa Peters, was grateful that this level of care was available in Central Kentucky. “I was able to be with her every day,” said Melissa.
Today, Lilly is home and healthy.
The HMH Foundation is proud to have raised more than $500,000 in grants and donations to fund the NICU. Investing in breakthrough initiatives like the NICU means preemies, like Lilly, can have access to a higher level of care close to home.
