Just Keep Swimming
Miracles happen every day at Women & Infants Hospital.
The Azize family shares one of those stories in their own video.
“Just Keep Swimming” chronicles their son’s inspirational journey in the Carter Family Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
Delivering Patients, Transforming Lives
The first time Jessica Bradley saw her daughter, Jordan, a medical team was prepping the newborn for transfer from a community hospital to Women & Infants.
“When I learned Jordan couldn’t breathe, I was terrified,” Jessica said. “That fear grew when I found out she had to be moved to intensive care.” But once the transport team from Women & Infants arrived, Jessica knew her daughter was in the best hands.
“The four nurses and physician assistant from the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) who moved Jordan were incredibly professional yet also very compassionate. They knew how afraid and helpless I felt and went out of their way to comfort me, especially because I had to stay behind until I could be transferred,” Jessica said.
The Art of Giving
When Emily and Matt Bucci moved to Rhode Island just months before the birth of their first child, they took the opportunity to tour Women & Infants. Impressed by the premier facility, the couple was equally taken with the art on its walls.
Women & Infants’ art collection, curated by Diana L. Johnson, boasts a broad range of art in a variety of media, from paintings to prints, photographs to sculpture. Most were gifts, although some have been purchased for a specific purpose. After Emily gave birth to their son, Teddy, at the hospital, the couple decided they would like to add to the collection.
