In a heartwarming tradition that has become synonymous with the spirit of the season, Nurses Kim Meek and Olivia Sizemore have once again transformed Ascension Saint Thomas Hospital's Midtown NICU into a festive wonderland for its tiniest residents. This marks the sixth consecutive year of their labor of love, where they've handcrafted adorable sweaters with a sprinkle of Christmas magic, infusing joy into the hospital halls. The duo, accompanied by dedicated team members and community contributors, added an extra layer of warmth this year by pairing the snug sweaters with Christmas hats. The result is a charming scene that envelops every newborn and their families in the NICU with the comforting embrace of the holiday season.


But the holiday magic doesn't end there—Ascension Saint Thomas Rutherford Hospital in Murfreesboro also boasts a NICU dedicated to providing high-quality neonatal care. Recognizing the unexpected nature of neonatal needs, the hospital's doctors and nurses collaborate to offer specialized care, connecting newborns to either a Level II NICU at Ascension Saint Thomas Rutherford or a Level III NICU at Ascension Saint Thomas Midtown, ensuring the best possible care for every precious life.

In the true spirit of the season, these nurses and healthcare professionals are not only delivering medical care but also spreading warmth, hope, and festive joy to families celebrating their little miracles during this special time of year. The community applauds and appreciates the dedication of these healthcare heroes who, with their small acts of kindness, create lasting memories for families in the NICU.
