NICU staff earns mom’s eternal gratitude
Not a day goes by when Denita Gaines and her partner, James Vereb, do not stop to give thanks for their healthy twin girls, Aubrey and Fallon. Mercy Medical Center’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is always included in that daily gratitude.
“It really is an amazing place. It’s a miracle. It really is,” Denita says of the NICU where her infant daughters spent their first 74 days after being delivered at 29 weeks and four days. The paternal twin sisters were born four minutes apart in August 2018.
Denita credits the “absolutely amazing” doctors and nurses at the NICU for easing the burden during that frightening and heart-wrenching period.
“Those people have a place in our family for the rest of our lives. I think of them every day.” 
Help needed for Mercy’s tiniest babies
Mercy Medical Center’s care for premature and at-risk newborns is already benefitting from new isolettes and other specialized equipment as an ambitious $500,000 fundraising campaign nears the 50-yard line.
“It is so important that our hospital is able to provide the most up-to-date technology and equipment to care for our premature and sick full-term babies,” said Dr. Ashlee Smith, Mercy’s director of neonatology and newborn services.
Additional donations will help Mercy’s Neonatal Inten- sive Care Unit (NICU) keep these babies close to home and close to their families while they heal, Smith said. The NICU serves all of California north of Sacramento and cares for nearly 400 babies each year.
For more information or to make a donation to support the NICU campaign, call Michelle Martin Streeby at (530) 247-3424 or visit www.supportmercy- 
