St. Charles’ Neonatal Intensive Care Unit will host a reunion for current and former patients and their families with current and former caregivers on Sunday, June 23 from 1 to 4 p.m. at St. Charles Bend. This free family-friendly event will include interactive games, refreshments, crafts, a bouncy house, a photobooth, face painting and a visit from Airlink helicopters.

“We want this to be a time of celebration and connection for our NICU patients and their families. Our caregivers love to see how the infants we helped care for have grown, healed and thrived in the months and years since they were in the NICU. It’s also a ton of fun,” said Brooke Jensen, director of women and children’s services for St. Charles Health System.

Attendees are encouraged to wear a favorite superhero costume.

“We see these patients and their families as our superheroes, as they have shown so much strength and bring so much joy,” said Jensen.

The reunion will be held in Conference Rooms A-D at St. Charles Bend (enter through the main lobby.) Those planning to attend are encouraged to RSVP at
