Pictured from L to R: Annabelle Encarnacion, RN, BSN, Memorial Hermann Southeast NICU, Celina Castillo, mother, Lucy Garza, NICU graduate.

Balloons, face painting, games and superheroes filled the hallway near the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Memorial Hermann Southeast Hospital recently. All of the fun was part of the hospital’s annual NICU reunion.

The reunion celebrates life and provides families the opportunity to visit with the physicians, nurses and staff that cared for them during their time at the hospital. Dozens of families returned for the celebration including one-year-old Lucy Garza who spent her first days in the NICU at Memorial Hermann Southeast.

“We spent some critical days here in the NICU and today is a very happy day for us,” says Jorge Garza, Lucy’s father. “We wanted to come back and just say ‘thank you’ to everyone.”

The event is every bit as special for the NICU team. “When we see these little ones and their families for the first time it’s often a very stressful and sometimes, critical time,” says Annabelle Encarnacion, RN, BSN, Memorial Hermann Southeast NICU. “We develop such a close bond with our babies and their families while they are here with us. It’s wonderful when they come back and we see how well they’re growing and thriving.”

The Level III NICU at Memorial Hermann Southeast is capable of caring for the smallest and sickest of newborn babies. Neonatologists, neonatal nurses and respiratory therapists combine with advanced technology to provide specialized care for newborns needing intensive medical attention.

Memorial Hermann Pearland Hospital Hosts “Women’s Wednesdays”


Physicians, nurses and staff at Memorial Hermann Pearland Hospital are wearing pink every Wednesday in October in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Memorial Hermann Pearland Hospital is hosting “Women’s Wednesdays” throughout October as part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The event aims to raise breast cancer awareness and to educate women on the number of services available to them through the hospital.

According to the American Cancer Society, about 246,660 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in women this year. However, statistics show mammography has helped reduce breast cancer mortality in the United States by nearly 40 percent since 1990.

Each Wednesday in October the hospital will host “Women’s Wednesdays.” Women are welcome to visit the hospital, enjoy pink-themed desserts and speak with an imaging center expert to answer breast health questions and schedule a mammogram.

“Women’s Wednesdays” information tables will be available October 19 and 26 from 11:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. in the Memorial Hermann Pearland Café.

To schedule your annual screening mammogram or to learn more about the breast care services offered through Memorial Hermann call 877-40-MAMMO (62666).

Pearland Golf Club to host golf tourney for first Winter Games of Texas in Pearland


The Pearland Convention & Visitors Bureau (CVB) and the City of Pearland Parks & Recreation Department have been awarded the bid for the 2018-2019 Winter Games of Texas, sanctioned by the Texas Amateur Athletic Federation (TAAF). The City of Pearland has been a member city of TAAF for 5+ years, and hosting the Winter Games will allow Pearland to further establish itself within this statewide organization.

The vision for the first time sporting partnership is to bring visitors to Pearland in support of the Pearland Convention & Visitors Bureau mission, which is to promote and coordinate tourist related activity within the City of Pearland.

The Pearland Golf Club at Country Place is proud to host the 2018 Golf Tournament for the Winter Games.

The announcement was made on Tuesday (October 18) at the Parks and Rec Center in the company of TAAF, Parks & Rec and CVB officials, as well as City dignitaries, including City Manager Clay Pearson, Deputy City Manager Jon Branson and Assistant City Manager Trent Epperson.

Funding for the event will be handled through a collaborative partnership between the Pearland Convention & Visitors Bureau and the City of Pearland Parks & Recreation, along with sponsorships and event revenue. There is an estimated economic impact of $1.5 million to the local Pearland economy.
