Middletown, NY- Hailey’s Hope Foundation, a Goshen-based nonprofit organization dedicated to helping meet the special needs of families with premature babies in New York area Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICUs), has donated equipment to Orange Regional Medical Center’s NICU located in the Rowley Family Birthing Center.
Hailey’s Hope Foundation donated a digital infant scale, breast pumps as well as a digital camera outfitted with a printer so new parents may have photos of their newborn.
