KENNEWICK, WA- Kadlec hosted a very special reunion event for NICU families and a farewell to a doctor who's worked in the unit for almost 30 years.

Families had a chance to thank Dr. Anthony Hadeed along with other nurses who have helped them out. It was a chance for families who have faced similar NICU situations, to bond. 

"It just shows how much help the NICU and Kadlec is doing for the community," said the Duquist Family.

"It's good to see those.  Every time I go somewhere I will meet with parents.  They'll say do you remember me? Remind me of your name again.  My son is 17 years old now.  And I say oh.  It's good to have that feeling," said Dr. Hadeed.

Families said they were grateful to get the opportunity to thank Dr. Hadeed.  He has touched more than 9,000 lives.
