In 2018, your contribution to Fantasy of Trees will help purchase a new
Giraffe Omnibed incubator and warmer for our pediatric intensive care unit, and replacement
beds for other areas in hospital.
The Giraffe Omnibed is the perfect environment for medically fragile infants.
With the touch of a button, the bed converts from a full-featured incubator
to a radiant warmer. This helps reduce stress to the baby and increases
access for the baby’s team of medical experts. The bed also has
a patented Baby Susan rotating mattress to minimize unnecessary stimulation
of the baby, while provide easy access for medical staff providing intensive
care. The bed’s elevating base offers a comfortable working height
for medical staff as well as just the right angle for family interaction
with their baby.
