Parent Suites

Choose an amount to donate


Parent suites are essential to a hospital’s children’s and childbirth programs, particularly for parents who have a baby receiving care in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). Currently, the hospital has five small parent suites in the NICU that can parents can book to stay overnight at the hospital while their baby is receiving care.

NICUs specialize in caring for babies who are very sick or are born prematurely and require extra support. Spending time in the NICU can be a challenging experience for babies and their families, and throughout this uncertain and potentially stressful experience, the ability for parents to remain at the hospital with their child can be incredibly beneficial for both the baby and parents alike.

To promote the highest level of patient and family experience, and in alignment with our value of In Service & Hospitality, we plan to refurbish each of these five parent suites to make these rooms more welcoming and comfortable. Each room will be repainted and refurnished to include things like new beds and linens, TVs and mini-fridges. The upgrades for each room are budgeted at an estimated $15,000.

All donations exceeding our fundraising goal for parent suites will support the highest priority needs of the Grand River Kids care area.
