Our Nurses: 

Where 2 or 3 babies are gathered together ... there is a high risk of catching a cold, fever or virus. Fortunately, our dedicated nurses work around the clock, caring for our little angels, whether they're suffering from the sniffles or locked in a life-and-death battle with pneumonia. As you can see, it's a big job our nurses are entrusted with. We consider them angels too.
