Cincinnati Zoo Gifts #TeamFiona Onesies to NICU

The littlest patients at Cincinnati Children’s received a special gift from the Cincinnati Zoo on Friday.

Babies in the Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU) received onesies featuring a picture of baby hippo Fiona, who was born premature at the Zoo on January 24.

“We have a unique connection with our neighbors at the Zoo because we both are caring around the clock for critically ill newborns and we share a passion for making our little ones better,” said Rachel Wilson, NICU clinical director at Cincinnati Children’s.

The onesies were a thank you after the NICU staff sent baby hippo Fiona and her care team a package several months ago.
