Donation lands Mayo neonatal unit camera system for parents



Parents, others, can see their

A big donation to Mayo Clinic Health System in La Crosse could make it a little easier. 

The clinic has just received $40,000 from the Franciscan Healthcare Auxiliary to buy a password-protected camera system for parents to check on their babies from miles away through live video streaming. 

The money was raised at last year’s Auxiliary’s Tiny Tim benefit and Jingle Bell Brunch. 

The system should be operational by the end of the year.
