Meet Nurse Laketa. Laketa knows the NICU well. She has been a NICU nurse at TriCity Medical Center for the last five years and currently has a granddaughter who has been in the NICU for the past three months.
Laketa is grateful for the opportunity to serve patients who have had little access to health care. In 2019, Laketa was recognized as the night NICU nurses of the year by TriCity Medical Center.
Miracle Babies first met Laketa two years ago at a Miracle Hour. Laketa co-facilitates the monthly Miracle Hours at Tri-City Medical Center.
