Doreen Koenig Blessed Beginnings Maternity Unit

A Message from Friends of Doreen

More than a year before she passed away on July 10, 2015, Doreen Koenig embarked on a campaign to fund the new maternity unit at Holy Cross Hospital. Even through challenging months of treatment and care, Doreen continued to share her passion and maintain her leadership role with the goal of completing this project. Now Doreen’s many friends are banding together to complete a $4 million campaign that will forever recognize her legacy and make her mission a reality.

will welcome new life and celebrate the miracle of birth in a fully-renovated, beautiful and sophisticated atmosphere. The unit features state-of-the-art technology in obstetrics and includes a level-two neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) that is able to accommodate babies born as early as 32 weeks, a well-baby nursery and two private VIP suites. Moms will also have on-demand meals delivered to them as well as access to nurses via mobile phones so they can get answers to their questions and concerns without delay. The mission is to pamper them so that they can focus on what’s truly important, their brand new baby.

Please join the friends of Doreen Koenig in naming this special maternity unit as a lasting memorial to Doreen, to whom this project was so important. As Doreen always said, “It’s for the babies!”
