Newborn Wall of Celebration


The "Newborn Wall of Celebration" located outside the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and newborn nursery offers the parents of children delivered at Mercy over the years the opportunity to commemorate the care that they and their infants received in the hospital.

The wall features a colorful rainbow motif, symbolizing hope, renewal and community, on which parents of babies born at Mercy over the past decades can place a small plaque with their child's name and date of birth as a demonstration of gratitude for the work of the Mercy physicians, nurses and staff who nurtured and cared for them in their first days of life.

More than 1,300 newborns begin life at Mercy each year, including some 300 premature or sick infants who receive care in the hospital's Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, which is the only facility on the south Shore of Nassau County to receive that designation from New York State.

The "Wall of Celebration" is a project of the Council of Leagues of Mercy.

Parents wishing to donate should contact the Development Office at 516-705-1399.

Proceeds will specifically benefit Mercy's maternal child services.
