Over the weekend, officials with AtlantiCare held a special event to reunite Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) patients with the people who helped nurse them back to health.
On Saturday, June 16th, AtlantiCare representatives invited former NICU patients and their families to an NICU reunion to help mark the program's 40 years of service in the South Jersey community.
The event gave nurses and doctors a chance to see how the once-premature babies who started their medical journeys at AtlantiCare have grown and thrived.
It also gave families the opportunity to reconnect with the staff members who helped care for their tiny bundles of joy.
Among those in attendance was 23-year-old Stephanie Dingman who was an NICU patient in 1995 and has grown up to become a registered nurse at AtlantiCare.
