A former patient gives back to the Ronald Room at Bayhealth Kent General.

Veronica Behrns returned to Kent General with a large bin of soup, pasta, crackers, and other food to stock the rooms pantry after staying in the hospital overnight when her newborn, Aubrey, was diagnosed with jaundice.

“I was extremely grateful that I could stay with my baby,” Behrns said. As a new mom, worried about her baby’s health, her home in Felton seemed a thousand miles away from where she most wanted to be.

Bayhealth's Ronald Room provides housing and meals for families whose children are in the intensive care unit.
