A Warm Welcome for Babies
Community hospitals like Soldiers + Sailors Memorial Hospital thrive by the strong support of their friends, neighbors and staff, and Friends of SSMH are encouraging everyone to join them in raising funds to purchase a Panda Warmer for the hospital nursery.

“Warmers are a vital piece of equipment that we use to monitor infants and keep their temperature stable and comfortable,” explains Khara Martin, Patient Care Manager for the OB Unit. “This new, innovative warmer is wonderful because unlike some of the previous models, it has everything we need centrally located in one machine—from built-in scales and warmth to vitals and resuscitation.”
