January 21, 2019 Ridgewood, NJ — In December of 2018, Mindray North America, a medical device manufacturer based in Mahwah, New Jersey made a $2,000 donation to The Valley Hospital’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).
“We are very grateful for the donation we received from Mindray,” says Christiana Farkouh-Karoleski, M.D., Associate Director of the NICU. “Having a baby in the NICU can be an overwhelming experience for a parent, and Valley’s staff is committed to providing the highest quality medical care possible to newborns and their families. Through philanthropy, we can enhance our services and further improve the patient experience.”
Each year, approximately 1 in 10 newborns is admitted to a NICU in the United States. Valley’s 15-bed NICU has been designated by the State of New Jersey as a Level III nursery, a designation given to neonatal units able to provide the care for high-risk mothers and acutely ill newborns. The highest quality of specialized comprehensive medical care is provided by board-certified neonatologists, who are available 24-hours a day, seven days a week. Valley’s neonatology team also includes highly skilled neonatal nurses, dedicated respiratory therapists, pediatric pharmacists, pediatric occupational, physical and feeding therapists, social workers, lactation consultants and family support specialists.
