A campaign for Bryan Medical Center’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) in two phases will dramatically enhance the experience for families of our smallest patients.
Phase 1 will construct a rooftop healing garden will provide an escape from the stress of an institutional environment, with the unique needs of patients and their families in mind. The garden will offer a space for patients, families and healthcare staff to refocus and regroup. Access to pleasant outdoor environments can reduce pain, anxiety, emotional distress, complications as well as increase clarity for decision making and sense of well being for patients, families and care givers alike.
For many patients, a hospital stay is a short, infrequent visit. However, for patients and their families who find themselves in need of extended care and services, those days, weeks and months can be difficult to face inside hospital walls. The rooftop garden will be located above Bryan Medical Plaza on Bryan East Campus, with access from the Women’s & Children’s Tower’s third floor neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). Phase II will create an endowment for ongoing program and capital support including for technology and education.

Sweet Baby Blues
The inaugural Sweet Baby Blues, a celebratory evening of fine art, music, wines and culinary delights at the Kiechel Fine Art Building, brought more than 400 guests together and raised $102,000 in charitable support towards a tremendous cause – the Bryan Medical Center Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).
We thank our partners, guests and everyone involved in helping to raise awareness and funds towards the NICU at Sweet Baby Blues. We especially thank those dedicated to the care of our NICU babies and their families each and every day.
We give special thanks to our sponsors for the evening:
