Sweet Dreams

Nothing is more magical than the birth of child, but when a baby enters this world too early or with serious health concerns, the magic is overshadowed by unimaginable fear.

You can help turn that fear into hope.

The Sanford Boekelheide Neonatal Intensive Care Unit has cared for more than 9,000 babies in the last 10 years, but our current equipment cannot last forever. As more and more families rely on our NICU for lifesaving intervention, we urgently need your help to stay on the cutting edge.

Your investment in the Sweet Dreams campaign will provide our NICU and The Birth Place at Sanford USD Medical Center with the latest technology and equipment to give every baby a fighting chance for a bright future.


Giraffe OmniBed

Designed to mimic a mother’s womb, the Giraffe OmniBed surrounds critically ill and premature babies in a carefully controlled environment optimal for growth. The Giraffe OmniBed allows caregivers to perform lifesaving procedures while minimizing harmful movement. Every baby who enters the NICU spends at least 24 hours in the healing embrace of a Giraffe OmniBed.


Panda Warmer

Even full-term and healthy babies can struggle to regulate their body temperature. By providing direct, comfortable heat, the Panda Warmer helps newborns transition after birth. Every infant born at Sanford feels this warmth while they are weighed, dried, measured, bathed and assessed for health concerns.



Bonding between parents and new babies is as important in the NICU as it is at home. The NICVIEW camera system allows families to grow that bond, even when they cannot be by their little one’s side. With secure video streaming available around the clock, family members can virtually visit baby anytime, anywhere.
