Neonatal Intensive Care Unit Parent Support (NICUPS)

The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit Parent Support (NICUPS) is a community support organization, supported and facilitated entirely by local parents, community members and NICU nursing staff. NICUPS is devoted to offering support to parents and caregivers of premature and special needs newborns.

Organized by previous NICU parents, the group members discuss experiences, share stories and learn from one another.

If you would like to talk to someone in the Parent Support group, please call the NICU Family Liaison Nurse Sue Johnson, at (717) 651-5961. We also actively participate in a Facebook group called NICU Parent Support Group of York.
