Help the House Call Company raise $35,000 for a new Isolette Unit for CHKD!
CHKD’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, or NICU, is the largest and most sophisticated critical care facility for newborns in the region. Approximately 550 newborn babies who need intensive medical attention are admitted to CHKD's 70-bed unit every year from hospitals throughout southeastern Virginia, the Eastern Shore and northeastern North Carolina. Most are born prematurely - some as early as 23 weeks gestation. Others suffer from severe heart and lung conditions or birth defects that require early surgical intervention. The NICU combines advanced technology and trained healthcare professionals to provide specialized care for the tiniest patients.
Most babies admitted to the NICU are premature have low birth weight (less than 5.5 pounds), or have a medical condition that requires special care. In the US, nearly 12 percent of babies are born preterm, and many of these babies also have low birth weights. Twins, triplets and other multiples often are admitted to the NICU, as they tend to be born earlier and smaller than single birth babies. Babies with medical conditions such as heart problems, infections or birth defects are also cared for in the NICU.
Here at the House Call Company, we have several of our own CHKD stories! From premature births to life saving surgeries, the staff at the House Call Company have seen first–hand the amazing blessing it is to have such a facility here in Hampton Roads. This year, we have decided to raise awareness and the funds to help premature babies at CHKD. This Isolette crib (or incubator),is a clear plastic enclosed crib that maintains a warm environment for the new baby as she cannot regulate her own body temperature. It also maintains consistent relative humidity and isolates himfrom germs by supplying purified air.
This Isolette unit is fundamental to the babies’ health. It is also very close to our hearts here at the House Call Company as we improve lives by improving homes every day. Our heating, cooling, plumbing, electrical and building science technicians service hundreds of clients every year. The synergies between the services CHKD and this Isolette crib offer and the services our staff offer, just make this campaign priceless.
