RJWC Club Members use their hands to provide comfort to children at C.S. Mott Children's Hospital
The Rochester Junior Woman's Club recently donated knitted, crocheted, and hand sewn hats and blankets made by the club’s Knitting Group to the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit at C.S. Mott Children's Hospital in Ann Arbor, MI.
The University of Michigan Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) at C.S. Mott Children's Hospital houses 20 beds for children with medical or surgical illnesses requiring the highest level of intensive monitoring or therapy. The PICU provides 24-hour care by a multidisciplinary care team of nurses, respiratory therapists, pharmacists, nutritionists -- all led by board-certified pediatric intensivists, critical care fellows, and pediatric residents. Their PICU enjoys an international reputation for excellence in the care of children with respiratory failure, especially those who require artificial organ support. Subjects of ongoing research in their PICU include the intensive care of asthma, increased intracranial pressure, respiratory failure, sepsis, multiple organ failure, nosocomial infections, bereavement, and teamwork. Nationally recognized programs in artificial organ support with extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) and continuous hemodialysis (CRRT) are unique to this critical care unit.
For over 55 years the Rochester Junior Woman's Club has been proud to contribute to the growth and vitality of the community through volunteer service and donation of funds to local charities and organizations. Since its inception, the Rochester Junior Woman’s Club has donated more than 1 million hours of community service and raised more than $790,000 to support the local community.
