How can I possibly convey to you what Kent has meant to me?
I was told I probably wouldn’t be able to have a child, so when I found out I was pregnant, we were thrilled. It wasn’t an easy pregnancy, however, and I had a lot of complications. I was confined to bed rest at seven months and ended up having a C-section. Our little girl, Madison, was born at 1:57 a.m. on January 1, 2000 – Rhode Island’s first baby of the millennium!
Unfortunately, Madison had a lot of fluid in her lungs and needed special care. In partnership with Women & Infants and staffed by their specialized neonatologists, Kent has an amazing Level II Nursery with advanced medical facilities, so Madison got the care she needed. I can’t say enough about the people at Kent – they were there at every point during my pregnancy and delivery to make sure we were both safe and healthy. The nurses were like friends and encouraged me and helped take away my fears. They even predicted that the baby would be born on the first. Today, Madison is healthy and happy thanks to Kent Hospital.
