Little patients celebrate big milestones at Baptist Women’s Hospital event

Former neonatal intensive care unit patient Calab Bothway sits on his father’s lap and admires a goat at the Baptist Women’s Hospital’s annual NICU reunion. This year’s event featured a petting zoo. Each year, about 500 babies are treated in the hospital’s NICU; some weigh less than a pound at birth and have to spend months there. More than half of the hospital’s NICU patients and families receive TennCare or Medicaid.
