Fraser Health’s Royal Columbian Hospital cares for some of B.C.’s most vulnerable babies.

The hospital’s high-acuity NICU provides life-saving support to more than 500 infants each year, and is consistently ranked one of the top hospitals in the country in caring for newborns, according to the Canadian Neonatal Network.

In this feature article in the August edition of Hospital News (page 10), a Canadian health care trade publication, I take a closer look at one of the incredible stories born in this NICU.

Read the moving story of a first-time father to a son in Royal Columbian’s NICU who owed his own life to hospital staff who saved him from a stroke almost 40 years before. He says the hospital gave him new life, twice.

Stay tuned for more stories from the front lines of health care.
