High Cost of Parking
Visiting a baby in the NICU every day is just as important to their recovery as the medical care they receive. But many families are unable to afford the transportation costs to make this a possibility. The average length of stay for a baby in the NICU is 28 days, but the majority are there for months at a time and the financial burden of parking can easily amount to upwards of $1,000/month. Can you imagine having to choose whether to pay your mortgage or visit your baby?
That is why Jackson Chance Foundation provides complimentary 24/7 parking for families with babies in the NICU. This allows children to be held so they can heal faster, grow stronger, and have a better chance at life.
“More frequent hospital visits will facilitate parental-infant bonding, encourage timely communication with the medical team, and reduce parental anxiety.” – Dr. James W. Collins, Lurie Children’s Hospital
Families with babies in the NICU struggle with many burdens – parking expenses shouldn’t be one of them.
