Long-time Floral Park resident Carol Ulrich says she’s reached a place in her life where it is time to pay it forward. And, she is using her talent as a skilled crocheter to do just that.
A member of the Carle Place Eve Homemakers and a long-time friend of Ron Marino, DO, Vice Chairman of Pediatrics at NYU Winthrop, Ms. Ulrich wanted to do something special for the young patients in NYU Winthrop’s Neonatal ICU (NICU). So, she crocheted more than 120 hats for the Hospital’s littlest patients. She recently visited the Hospital, where she met with Dr. Marino and the Chief of Neonatology, Nazeeh Hanna, MD, to present her special donation and see firsthand just some of the patients who will benefit.
“We are so thankful for Ms. Ulrich’s generous donation of time and talent to create such beautiful hats for our patients,” said Dr. Hanna.
Ms. Ulrich spends many hours all year long crocheting hats, lap blankets, and other decorative items for local hospitals and charities. NYU Winthrop holds a special place in her heart, however, as her daughter, Kay, was born at the hospital.
NYU Winthrop’s NICU is ranked among the best in the world regarding overall survival of extremely premature babies. This is when compared to more than 800 NICUs by the prestigious Vermont Oxford Registry Network, an authority on the measurement of care and outcomes for high-risk infants all over the world.
