at Dayton Children's

Imagine all Dayton Children’s Hospital offers our community.

Dayton Children’s Regional Level III B NICU is the region's referral center for premature and sick newborns, providing the right care for the region's most fragile babies. Imagine an improved level of care and support for babies and their families.  Imagine the latest technology, private rooms created for bonding and family connection, and access to the latest innovations healthcare has to offer.  Now imagine the babies Dayton Children's has cared for creating their own LifePrint in our community and in the world.

The Women’s Board supports Dayton Children's commitment to provide our community with the best possible specialized care and facilities.  Therefore, The Women’s Board will dedicate the proceeds from CHA-CHA 2015 to a very important cause: The new Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU), which is part of a long-range facility and campus renewal plan that will improve the delivery of care to our region's children for generations to come. The updated state-of-the-art NICU will be triple the size of the current facility and will feature: 

  • Private rooms for babies and their families
  • A dedicated entrance for the more than 70% of babies that arrive via transport
  • A more suitable environment for “Kangaroo Care” – skin-to-skin contact between mother and baby, as well as more privacy and support for breastfeeding mothers
  • Additional space for isolation babies who have contagious conditions
  • Additional conference room space for education/training
  • A common area that can be used for families to socialize, dine and rest
  • Space for a milk lab where a dedicated lab technician can prepare feedings

...and much more.

CHA-CHA 2015 will help Dayton Children's NICU build a 
new, state-of-the-art facility for the region's most fragile babies and their families.
