Essentia Health in Fargo is ready to share our newest space designed for our tiniest patients and their families.

A ribbon cutting and grand opening celebration for Women’s & Children’s Services and the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) will be held on September 17, 2019, from 4 to 7 p.m. at Essentia Health located at 3000 32nd Avenue South in Fargo.

This free event will feature food, family fun activities and tours of the new Women’s & Children’s floor. The floor contains the newly remodeled NICU featuring private rooms, women’s surgery recovery suites, after delivery care for new moms and babies and the pediatric unit.

The NICU area also includes a Ronald McDonald Family Room. This partnership provides a relaxing environment for families with children in the NICU and is the first of its kind in North Dakota. The room will provide a relaxed space for families to grab a snack or drink, take a shower or take a break just steps from their baby, if only for a few moments.
