Students and faculty from SJVC Rancho Cordova participated in the 30th Annual Dignity Health NICU Reunion, an event where former patients and family members celebrate their “graduation” from the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Units).
The ages of those participating in the event ranged from just a few months to 18 years and up. There were plenty of games and activities for the kids, and SJVC students assisted with setting up the booths and running them as well.
Several students helped with the photography booth, ensuring each person had the right paperwork before taking the picture that will eventually be used as a ceramic tile in the new NICU at MSJMC (Mercy San Juan Medical Center).
“The students were both enthusiastic and genuine in their work that day,” said Louie Dean Natividad, Assistant Laboratory Teaching Assistant at SJVC Rancho Cordova. “It’s hard not to smile even just thinking about it! I hope to see their experience at the NICU reunion continue to motivate them through the program and beyond,” added Natividad.
Dignity Health provides a personalized approach to healthcare, offering services from education and wellness to acute treatment and rehabilitation. It provides compassionate health services while collaborating with the community to improve the quality of life.
Students at SJVC were honored to take part in the reunion and will look forward to continuing their support for the community and local healthcare organizations such as Dignity Health.
