TUCSON, Ariz.— The second annual University Medical Center Labor and Delivery Memorial Service will be held on Sunday, Oct. 17, 1 p.m., to honor newborn babies who passed away last year. There will be music and sharing, and each family will receive a flower pot made by UMC staff members from the labor and delivery department.
"This service celebrates and remembers those babies who died before or shortly after birth," says Margie Neish, RNC, with the UMC Labor and Delivery. "It helps the families and staff remember and honor these special babies." -----
The University of Arizona College of Medicine, University Physicians Healthcare and University Medical Center work together to care for patients, educate medical students, train resident-physicians and conduct clinical and basic research. The UA Steele Children’s Research Center (www.steelecenter.arizona.edu) and UMC have worked together to build Diamond Children’s Medical Center (www.diamondchildrens.org), which officially opened in September.
