Hoops Family Children’s Hospital receives $1.5 million for Neonatal Therapeutic Unit upgrades 🏥

The Neonatal Therapeutic Unit (NTU) at the Hoops Family Children’s Hospital (HFCH) has recently undergone a makeover, providing a more welcoming, enlarged space for families thanks to a $1 million gift from the Cabell Huntington Hospital Auxiliary and a $500,000 grant from the Mylan Charitable Foundation.


The NTU is the first of its kind in the state of West Virginia and one of the first in the United States to treat newborns prenatally exposed to substances causing symptoms of withdrawal, a condition called Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS). In this unit, the babies benefit most from the quiet, supportive hospital setting. Babies with severe symptoms may need treatment with medications, while those with milder symptoms may only need therapeutic handling.
