RICHMOND HEIGHTS (KMOV.com) -

The Cardinals helped SSM St. Mary’s Hospital celebrate the opening of its new neonatal intensive unit.

Relief pitcher Brett Cecil and Fredbird were on hand as staffers moved 31 babies into the new facilitates.

The old NICU did not have space and privacy for parents to stay with their child.

The Level III NICU combines state-of-the-art medical care with a soothing environment that will support shorter NICU stays, a better quality of life and improved outcomes for babies.

The private room designs allow parents to spend more time with their babies and to take a part in their care.
