More than 150 people attended the annual NICU birthday party which full of several activities for children from face painting, jumpers, balloons and cupcakes.

Parents who had their children in the NICU also attended the event allowing staff members who had large roles in looking after a newborn to see how the child has grown over the years.

"Many of these families have spent, you know, from a few days here to many months here in our NICU, so there's a bond that is established between the families, the babies, our nurses, doctors, things like that," said Tasa Richardson, Director of Marketing and Community Relations of ORMC.

ORMC's level three NICU was opened in 1975 with six beds and has grown to hold a total of 49 beds over the last 39 years.
