This fund is for use at the Holy Cross Hospital in Silver Spring. At Holy Cross Hospital, we have always believed in providing more than just medical care to our patients and their families. A newborn baby’s admission to the NICU can be very stressful for the baby’s family, especially if the hospitalization is lengthy.

Our NICU staff prides itself on being an extended family by providing each baby’s family with support and encouragement. Our most financially vulnerable families, however, have needs that extend beyond emotional support, both while their babies are in the NICU and when they prepare to bring them home.

The Ryan Donald Basile Memorial Fund for NICU Families in Need has been established to meet these needs. The Fund honors the memory of the son of one of the NICU’s longest-serving medical providers. Ryan, who tragically passed away on March 29, 2020, at the age of 25, was the son of Susan Basile, a Neonatal Nurse Practitioner who has cared for babies and their families at Holy Cross for more than 30 years. Susan’s medical skills and dedication to her patients and their families are exceptional. Establishing this Fund in her son’s memory is a fitting tribute to her many contributions to the well-being of NICU families over the years.

The Fund is providing financial support to families in need of food, housing, childcare, and transportation while their infants are in the NICU. The Fund is also providing items such as formula, bottles, clothing, and car seats that are needed to prepare for their babies’ arrival home.

We hope you will join us in supporting the Ryan Donald Basile Memorial Fund for NICU Families in Need. Your donation will help financially vulnerable families navigate the fiscal challenges of an extended NICU hospitalization and enable them to prepare for their babies’ care after discharge. Donate now.
