Plan of the Week: Dec 4 - Dec 10

Plays of the Week:

Play of the week goes to Drs. Alex Mauro and Lisa Sukenaga, for helping out the NICU during their ward shift with a ELBW infant delivery, resuscitation, and UVC/UAC line placement. The NICU team appreciated their help and eagerness to learn!

Play of the week also goes to Drs. Bailey Howard and Nick Kondiles, who did an excellent job resuscitating late-preterm twins this week! Dr. Howard responded quickly and calmly to save a life when her patient developed secondary apnea. Bravo Zulu to both!

Play of the week also goes to CAPT Kevin O'Meara, who received an Army MSM and DMS Director's Coin for his 6+ month deployment to Qatar providing outstanding leadership as a military pediatrician caring for Afghan patients and US military personnel in the region.

Last, but not least, Play of the Week goes to Dr. Billy Bennett, who matched into Pediatric Critical Care Medicine Fellowship at Johns Hopkins!

Comfort Cases Donation Drive

  • Will you show your support this holiday season by making a donation to our Comfort Cases Donation Drive? Comfort Cases’ mission is to inspire communities to bring dignity and hope to youth in foster care through Comfort, Community, Character, and Compassion. They provide children entering foster care with backpacks filled with comfort and personal care items, since often times these children go into foster care with only the clothes on their backs, or given a trash bag to carry their belongings. Please drop off your donations in one of two train boxes located in Peds Specialty or Peds Primary. Donations will be collected until December 16th.
