Grandview Medical Center is one of 10 national hospitals to receive a NICU donation as part of Project 4, an initiative sponsored by Project Sweet Peas, a national non-profit that supports NICUs, and 4moms, the makers of the mamaRoo infant seat.
In its fourth year, the Project 4 program invites parents, families and hospital employees to share their stories about their NICUs and NICU staff for the opportunity to become one of 10 hospital donation recipients.
"It was difficult to select just 10 hospitals," said Amie Stanton, Director of Brand Engagement at 4moms. "We received over 3,200 nominations, including 81 for Grandview Medical Center."
The mamaRoo infant seat, which has a natural bouncing and swaying motion for preemie care, is currently used in 375 hospitals across the country. "We are grateful for the donation," said Stephanie Armstead, Director of Women's Services at Grandview. "The mamaRoo is a favorite with NICU nurses and families, and these five seats will be put to good use."
