WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — It was Frankie Everhart’s first time and he was overwhelmed.
“It’s the best thing that’s ever happened to me,” he said.
Frankie and his girlfriend, Kristen, were first-time parents. But their twins had to spend time in the NICU. Eventually, the boy got to go home but his sister, Saylor, needed to stay. Keeping an eye on them had been easy.
“We walked a couple hundred yards down the hallway and we were here every 30 minutes,” says Frankie.
But once they were at home with their son, seeing Saylor an hour away was a challenge … until the hospital told them about something new.
“I never heard hospitals offer anything like that,” says Frankie.
It was a new device – and angel, of sorts – that Forsyth Medical Center had just installed, thanks to money raised by their private foundation and spearheaded by former NICU families.
“They are so passionate about the NICU and the care that they received,” says Novant Health Foundation’s Heather Egan. “They want other families to experience that same level of care.”
In this edition of the Buckley Report, see how families like Frankie’s can keep an eye on their little ones from anywhere, anytime.
