Genesys hosts ceremony to name The Harry and Sally Swartz Special Care Nursery

(GENESEE COUNTY, MI) Genesys recently announced the naming of its special care nursery to The Harry and Sally Swartz Special Care Nursery. At a naming ceremony held last week at the hospital, Betsy Aderholdt, president and CEO of Genesys, expressed her gratitude to Sally Swartz who chose to support Genesys in memory of her late husband, Harry.
A plaque will hang outside The Harry and Sally Swartz Level II B Special Care Nursery to honor the Swartz family for their generosity.

"For nearly 40 years, the Swartz name literally has been coming to the rescue of patients throughout our community,” Aderholdt announced during the naming ceremony. “Now, through The Harry and Sally Swartz Special Care Nursery, you are impacting the critical moments of life and the lives of families for generations to come.”

The Genesys Special Care Nursery – a Level II B nursery – allows Genesys to care for sicker babies – those needing short-term mechanical ventilation and continuous positive airway pressure, babies born at more than 32 weeks gestation, and those weighing more than 1500 grams.

As Genesys works to create the health system of the future, The Harry and Sally Swartz Level II B Special Care Nursery represents a much needed complementary component to new mothers in this community who desperately need this level of care.

Genesys Health Foundation launched a $1.8 million capital campaign a few years ago to raise funds for the expansion of the special care nursery and for renovations in the Family Birthing Center.

In addition to the special care nursery, Genesys offers the services of on-site perinatologists (obstetricians trained specifically to care for high risk pregnancies).

Harry Swartz founded Swartz Ambulance in 1975. He also was the founder of Swartz Funeral Home, which he sold in 2005.
