In March 2015, a new fund was established in the PVH and MCR Foundation to benefit the Poudre Valley Hospital Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (PVH NICU). Despite the amazing work that happens there every day, the PVH NICU space has been in need of expansion and updating for some time. Mid-year, construction began at PVH on a number of projects including the demolition of PVH’s oldest building, the A Building, as well as a significant change to the PVH NICU. The new NICU will include individual patient rooms, new spaces for families, and many equipment upgrades to ensure the very best care for our community’s babies needing special care in the first weeks of life. To complement the work PVH is doing to update the NICU, the foundation established the PVH NICU fund to provide resources for families while their babies are in the NICU, and to provide enhanced and innovative care for our littlest patients.
During the demolition of PVH’s oldest building, bricks were salvaged for a special purpose: to benefit the PVH NICU fund. A limited number of bricks were rescued from the rubble of the A Building and are available to our community while supplies last, with donations benefiting the PVH NICU fund. A brick engraved with a message celebrating PVH’s long history in Fort Collins is available for $250, and a custom engraved brick that will live on installed as a walkway in the Gardens at PVH is available for $1000. To date, nearly 70 bricks have been reserved, and more than $33,000 has been raised in support of the newest additions to our community who need the most help.
