Project Give Hope
As you walk down the extended hallway leading to the Hospital's Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), you are greeted by an inspirational exhibit featuring the smiling faces of former NICU patients, now ages one through early adulthood, and a whimsical mural. Project Give Hope was created for the parents, family, and friends of newborns being cared for in the Hospital's NICU. Through the collaborative work of photographer Jen Gentry and muralist Amy Tubbs, Project Give Hope is an ongoing fundraiser for the NICU and is dedicated to our most delicate patients and the NICU staff who provide high quality and compassionate care every day.
Support Project Give Hope by naming a mural element in honor of a loved one.
