Cindy Weishaar, nurse manager of the Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU), explains the differences between the new Panda Warmer (left) and an older style warmer.

Safe & Warm

In 2018, the Champions came together to purchase four new radiant warmers for our tiniest patients in Labor & Delivery and the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Each Panda Warmer costs $17,725.

  • Panda Warmers are utilized in all births to immediately warm the baby as the pediatric teams assess the infant.
  • The special warming properties allow the baby to stay open (unclothed and unwrapped) for the team to easily assess and evaluate the baby, and for footprints and banding.
  • The latest Panda Warmers provide easy access to controls for oxygen, suctioning, weighing the baby, and emergency equipment needed to maintain airway.
