Parents give back to Salem Hospital NICU

Last fall, Austin was born prematurely and recovered in Salem Hospital’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.

While at the hospital, her parents — Sara and Tyler H. from Albany — enjoyed the children’s library of books. They also appreciated the NICU staff so much that after Austin went home, the couple wanted to give back in some way.

They eventually organized a “Books for Babies” drive. Sarah and Tyler collected more than 50 books from family and friends — and donated them to the NICU’s library last month.

The family plans to make this a tradition and continue collecting books for the NICU every year.
