Thank you for supporting babies, kids and families at Flinders

Posted 1 Mar 2023

Flinders Medical Centre cares for thousands of sick and vulnerable babies and children each year across the Neonatal Unit, Children’s Ward, Emergency Department, Child Protection Service and many other areas, services and programs.

Thank you for helping to make a difference to children’s lives by providing the best possible care, when children and families need it most. 

To mark World Prematurity Day, families with babies cared for by the Neonatal Unit at Flinders Medical Centre sent in messages of gratitude and hope, highlighting the amazing, highly-trained  medical and nursing staff who are committed to giving sick and premature babies the best start in life.

Here are some of the messages:

My family and I will remain eternally grateful for the care my baby received during our time in the Flinders Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). My baby made quite a dramatic entry into this world at only 23 weeks and chances of his survival were minimal. The little miracle is thriving today and when I reflect back at our time in the unit, the support, a kind word here and there, encouragement and an occasional hug from the staff gave us hope. We have nothing to offer except gratitude. They made the journey bearable. We made it through with massive support and professional care. Thank you.”  Serah, mum of Jediah (Pictured)

“To the special doctors, nurses and staff, thank you for taking care of my lovely daughter, who is completing year 12 and hopes to join the medical profession. Without your care my heart would be hollow.”

“We think and speak of you often and reflect on the journey you supported us on during our 100 odd days in NICU. Our son is now four and is healthy, happy and cheeky! Thank you for all that you do.”
