Miracle Walk was created by a family in gratitude for the care their daughter received during a three month stay in the Cooperman Barnabas Medical Center Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Lead by a group of dedicated parents, Miracle Walk has raised over $6.7 million since 2000. The funds have supported the purchase of advanced medical technology for the NICU such as Giraffe Omnibeds, NeoPuff infant resuscitators, neoBLUE LED phototherapy lights and cutting-edge Isolette infant transporters. They also continue to support the excellent and compassionate care by Cooperman Barnabas Staff to the 1,100 infants who are treated in the NICU annually.
Miracle Walk teams and supporters enable Cooperman Barnabas Medical Center to purchase state-of-the-art medical equipment to care for the region’s smallest and most fragile patients. In more recent years, the money donated helped support the expansion of the NICU located in the Cooperman Family Pavilion. Opened in 2018, the new 37,000 square-foot space expanded the NICU five-fold and created a quiet, comfortable and private space for babies and their families.
