Young Patient Heads Home After Eight Months In PWH NICU

Staff members lined the halls as baby Manuela left the hospital.

It was graduation day recently for young Manuela after nearly eight months in the Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at HCA Florida Palms West Hospital. Manuela was born at 23 weeks and spent all that time growing stronger (and even more adorable), preparing for her trip home. Her care team was sure to get in extra snuggles, and the HCA Florida Palms West Hospital family lined the halls and cheered as Manuela headed home with her parents.
