On Monday March 2nd 2020, the Health Services Authority Maternity’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) celebrated during a ribbon cutting ceremony their brand new Neonatal Transport Incubator donated by Team Nolan the Pediatric arm of the Cayman Heart Fund. This state-of-the-art, high-performance Incubator transports neonates safely, comfortably and with a minimum of stress. It can be taken nearly anywhere and still provide the warm, safe environment and quick access necessary for optimal neonate care.
Charmin Fennell, HSA Maturity Ward Nurse Manager, said, “We are truly grateful for Team Nolan for being amazing advocates for neonatal care here in the Cayman Islands. The New Transport Incubator in our NICU will bolster our current resources greatly and enables us to provide necessary care to our neonates and premature infants needing to be transported outside of HSA for care. It will also be utilized for intradepartmental transfers as well.”
Ailian Evans, CHF Board Member & Founder of Team Nolan, said, “I’m elated to see that our efforts are making such a difference in the Cayman community. This new neonatal transport incubator will benefit the most vulnerable patients, such as premature infants or infants with critical health issues and it will keep them safe while being transported to another healthcare facility for further treatment and/or care.”
Sean Evans, Co-founder of Team Nolan, explained that “being able to donate such an important piece of medical equipment such as this infant transport incubator is proof that Team Nolan’s fund raising initiatives are all very much worth the expended time and effort“.
Dr Christine Chen, CHF Board Member, said, Thanks to the great efforts of Ailian and Sean Evans and their dedicated group of volunteers, known as Team Nolan, the CI-HSA NICU now has another well needed incubator which will help serve, not only babies with congenital heart disease, but other babies born prematurely or in distress.
