Each year, on the first Saturday in June, Franciscan Health Lafayette East hosts a NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) Reunion, alongside the Annual Healthy Families Fun Fair, for NICU graduates.
The fair is free and will feature fun, kid-friendly activities at every booth.
The Healthy Families Fun Fair is held on the Franciscan Health Lafayette East campus in the North Entrance. Parking is available in the hospital North parking lot.

Families with children who were treated in the Home Hospital, St. Elizabeth East or Franciscan Health Lafayette East NICU are invited to come and share their experiences with other families and to visit with the NICU physicians and nurses who cared for their child. A group photo is typically taken.
"Throughout the last 30 years Home Hospital and Franciscan Health Lafayette East have been there to care for area babies during their time of need," said Dr. Rosario Chua, NICU doctor. "It's a very powerful experience for everyone involved. The NICU reunion is a chance to celebrate the children and connect with other families who share a similar experience."

The third annual Franciscan Health Race for Kids will take place before the Healthy Families Fun Fair on Saturday, June 2, 2018.
All proceeds will help purchase equipment and supplies needed to provide a continuum of care from our tiniest of patients in the NICU to our children with developmental delays receiving outpatient therapy services.
