The Wawa Foundation has awarded Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women & Babies a $100,000 grant for its Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).

Supporting The Wawa Foundation’s health-focused giving initiative, the grant funds will purchase a new incubator used to transport high-risk and critically-ill neonatal patients to and from Winnie Palmer Hospital.

The Alexander Center for Neonatology at Winnie Palmer Hospital is one of the largest and busiest neonatal intensive care units in the country. In November 2016, Winnie Palmer Hospital added a new NICU transport unit to its fleet, the only vehicle in the region with the capacity for three incubators.
