Baptist Health Paducah 300PADUCAH, Ky. (3/14/14) — Baptist Health Foundation Paducah raised $17,090 for the hospital’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at its annual luncheon.

Information about the NICU’s community impact was shared by neonatologist Edward O’Neill, MD, obstetrician-gynecologist Blair Tolar, MD, and ReidlandMiddle School teacher Stephanie Rathgeber, whose twin daughters spent six weeks in the NICU.

There is joy in knowing that there are hardworking and caring professionals that put their whole hearts into their work and that they are right here in our backyard. I truly believe that my daughters are healthy and strong today because they received the best possible care at Baptist Health Paducah.”

The luncheon, sponsored by Payment Plus, included a fashion show by Nola’s Boutique emceed by Sandra Wilson, Paducah Area Chamber of Commerce president, and Darlene Mazzone, president of Mazzone Communications.

Other sponsors were Baptist Health Paducah Auxiliary, Credit Bureau Systems, Holland Stivers, US Bank, Paducah Bank, Davis Drugs, University of Louisville Neonatal Medicine, WestKentuckyCommunity & TechnicalCollege, Cornerstone Therapeutics, Doncaster of Paducah and Petter Business Systems.

“The funds raised will be used to help our smallest patients,” foundation director Laurie Latham said. “We sincerely appreciate all of our supporters for ‘Opening Up their Hearts and Kicking Up their Heels’ to benefit the NICU.”
