Today, the infants born at Hutzel Women’s Hospital received a special gift from the March of Dimes and Flagstar Bank.

Both entities delivered a large pallet of baby items to the labor and delivery floor of Hutzel. As part of their annual drive for babies, each year, Flagstar encourages their employees to purchase new infant items (bottles, clothes, diapers, wipes, receiving blankets, strollers, etc.) and donate them to a local birthing facility. This year, Hutzel was the recipient of the baby items. Pictured  here are the nurses of the Hutzel Labor and Delivery Units along with representatives from Flagstar Bank and March of Dimes.
