Welcome to Hardin Memorial Health
According to the March of Dimes, roughly 135 Kentucky babies are born preterm each week. This means that nearly 13 percent of all babies born in the Commonwealth are delivered before 37 weeks gestation.
Premature babies may have more health problems and may need to stay in the hospital longer than babies born later. They also may have long-term health problems that can affect their whole lives.
In honor of HMH’s participation in the upcoming March of Dimes event in Hardin County on April 30, we are sharing the story of the Wallace Family and their time at HMH’s Level II NICU.
“It was the worst experience to have a sick baby, but HMH has the most wonderful people there to take care of you,” said mother of five, Brooke Wallace. “HMH was the right place with the right people on the right days for our family.”
