The union that represents Redlands police officers donated $3,000 to the Redlands Community Hospital Neonatal Intensive Care Unit on Sept. 12, a city spokesman announced earlier this week.
Redlands Police Officers Association members helped raise the money in May through the Mu' Restaurant Charity Golf Tournament at Oak Valley Golf Club in Beaumont.
"We are so grateful to the Redlands Police Officers Association for this generous contribution to our NICU," said Zack Tucker, Redlands Community Hospital Foundation president. "We are honored to work with an organization that continues to support the youth of Redlands through scholarships, children's athletics, safety and educational programs."
The RCH Neonatal Intensive Care Unit is for babies who are born prematurely or have other medical problems, such as breathing difficulties, infections or conditions requiring special needs, Redlands spokesman Carl Baker said.
"Special equipment is used to observe and monitor babies closely as well as provide the correct balance of warmth, nourishment and oxygen if needed," Baker said. "The staff includes neonatologists, pediatricians, registered nurses, respiratory therapists, social workers, and occupational therapists."
