On Saturday, September 30th hundreds of graduates from the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) at Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women & Babies, along with their families, friends, supporters, doctors and nurses will gather at SeaWorld® Orlando for the 3rd Annual Walk for Winnie presented by Panera Bread®.
The graduates are some of more than 40,000 babies that have received care in the NICU since it was founded in 1975 at Orlando Regional Medical Center. Every day, our skilled physicians, nurses and respiratory therapists provide the highest level of lifesaving care for critically ill newborns, with one ultimate goal in mind: to help these babies thrive, to help them beat the odds.
Because of Walk for Winnie, the NICU at Winnie Palmer Hospital is able to provide care for more than 1,800 premature and critically-ill babies each year. It is the largest single-site NICU in the world and one of the busiest in the country. It is equipped to provide the highest-level of care for high-risk newborns, including babies born prematurely or with congenital heart disease, infections, and various other conditions. It consistently provides the best outcomes in Florida for low birth-weight babies.
