Local Fundraising Efforts Benefit the Mary Washington Hospital NICU

Local Fundraising Efforts Benefit the Mary Washington Hospital NICU

Fredericksburg, VA (February 16, 2021) – Mary Washington Hospital Foundation is pleased to recognize fundraising efforts by The Pogue Agency for the Mary Washington Hospital Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).

The Mary Washington Hospital NICU is the region’s only Level III facility and has provided world-class care to mothers and their babies for over 25 years. Through the highly trained, specialized staff and 24/7 coverage by Children’s National Hospital neonatologists, ranked number one in neonatology, the Mary Washington Hospital NICU is prepared to care for premature infants as small as one pound and born as young as 23 weeks, the delivery of multiples, and babies who need extra help as they begin their life outside their mother’s womb.

Additionally, Mary Washington Hospital is staffed with a dedicated neonatal transport team. This team can go to area hospitals that do not have a Level III NICU and bring these babies to Mary Washington Hospital for a higher level of care. This service allows families to remain close to home and their support systems.

“Through the efforts of Jacob Pogue, we are grateful for his leadership in selecting the Mary Washington Hospital NICU as the beneficiary of The Pogue Agency’s winter 2021 fundraising campaign,” said Xavier Richardson, President of the Mary Washington Hospital and Stafford Hospital Foundations. “We are proud to recognize the Agency’s great work and their commitment to supporting charitable organizations.”

“After experiencing these services first-hand during the birth of our twin boys in March 2018, I feel fortunate to be in a position and with a company like Symmetry Financial group, that values the importance of giving back,” said Jacob Pogue, Associate Partner and Advisory Board Member with The Pogue Agency, an affiliate of Symmetry Financial Group. “I am excited for the financial impact and difference our agents can have on the NICU services at Mary Washington Hospital and the families it serves.”

Funds donated to the Mary Washington Hospital NICU will ensure that it continues to be a leader in providing the highest quality of care to local families, like the Pogues.
