Here’s what’s happening at Novant Health Hemby Children’s Hospital


October 1, 2019

We are excited to share all of the operational updates taking place at Novant Health Hemby Children’s Hospital.  

  • The murals on the walls of the Hemby unit are complete, and, thanks to the support of one of our families, we were able to provide our team with a respite room on our pediatric floor. You also will notice beautiful updates to our playroom and treatment room.  
  • Thank you to ACE Cash Express associates who raised $20,561 during their annual fundraising event, Give A Little Campaign, for the St. Jude Affiliate Clinic at Novant Health Hemby Children’s Hospital. Pictured below is Justin Trakas, Development manager, Ruby Poulton and Jennifer Clifford, Chief development officer. 
  • We are proud to announce construction will begin in October on a progressive care area for our pediatric unit, which will allow us to deliver intermediate care to our pediatric patients.  
  • Also, keep watch on our progress toward the end of the year as we add an additional 12 neonatal intensive care beds in the NICU.  

Looking forward, our plans include a new outside play area for our families, as well as a much-needed family kitchen for our overnight guests in need of a place of respite.  

Until next time,
