Last week, an 11-year-old girl hospitalized at SCMCI, where she was connected to the ECMO machine for over 40 days, asked the staff to go outside to the sunshine. The moment that the sun peeked through the clouds, the attending team (doctor, nurse and ECMO operators) organized and with great teamwork, took the girl outside to enjoy the sunlight.

The moving post went viral within hours and an outpouring of support to the hospital’s dedicated team, determined to go above and beyond for each and every child, began and still continues.
