Stormont Vail Neonatal Intensive Care

This year Stormont Vail Health Clinic has helped over 70 families in the Flint Hills area through their Neonatal Intensive Care. With the grant provided by the community foundation as well as other internal and external fundraising they have paid for over $9500 worth of expenses for families that have premature infants receiving care in the NIC. These funds helped with expenses including meals, gas vouchers, lodging, and child prescriptions for families in the flint hills area who continuously travel to Stormont Vail in Topeka. The impact of these funds includes attachment and bonding between parents and child, communication with the care team that consists of nurses and doctors, peer support, physical care, parental confidence, as well as relieving financial burden to help boost the physical, emotional, and psychological benefits for the babies and parents. The Stormont Vail staff would like to thank GMCF and the Kansas Health Foundation for all the support.
