Mercy Hospital Capes for Kids (Web article I wrote for KNWA)
Hundreds of kids will soon sport capes to show their super-kid strength after fighting for their lives in neonatal care at Mercy hospital.
200 capes were finalized Friday morning, and will be given to children who were cared for in Mercy's neonatal intensive care unit as newborns. The hospital has 129 babies in NICU care and they like to celebrate each child's success.
"It's a big celebration and we love seeing all the little ones come back some are not so little anymore. But we enjoy seeing that growth process and the parents being so successful in their endeavors too," said Jeri Power, RN, Mercy Hospital.
The capes were originally made to distract and comfort children who were patients in Mercy's ER. Capes made will be presented to children at a reunion ceremony on May 7th.
