March of Dimes NICU Family Support Program

Capital Health was chosen as New Jersey's first site to house the March of Dimes NICU Family Support Program. The Family Support Program provides information and emotional support to families of critically ill newborns being cared for in our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.

Throughout a baby's NICU hospital stay, during the transition from NICU to home, as well as in the event of an infant’s death, we offer:

  • A Family Support Liaison who has personally experienced having a baby in the NICU and works closely with families to help them throughout their time spent in the NICU. You may contact Christy Keppel at ckeppel@marchofdimes.org or at (609) 815-7680.
  • Education resources you need throughout your time in the NICU as well as your transition home - including materials for Spanish-speaking families.
  • Programs and activities, including a photo keepsake, pizza party and scrapbooking.
  • Online information, resources and communities available 24/7 at:
