Parents who take their babies home from the intensive care nursery at HUP will now bring along a fuzzy companion, thanks to a donation from the local American Heart Association.

And there’s no shortage of welcoming arms to give them to; the NICU on 8 Ravdin has an average of 36 patients on any given day, and parents are allowed access to their babies 24 hours a day.
