Our Impact

    Funds raised from the 2016, 2017 and 2018 galas have provided almost $3 million in vital equipment and building needs including new incubators and warmers for both NICU and Labor & Delivery. The 2018 gala also funded a new support program for NICU families.

    There is still a great need to provide the ASMCA Labor & Delivery and NICU teams the best resources and environment to care for the smallest members in our community and their families. Focusing on the NICU and mother/baby services at Ascension Seton Medical Center Austin continues to be a perfect fit for EASB!
