Making a Difference


Mrs. Emily Hovnanian and Mary Catherine Mulvaney. Born at just 29 weeks gestation and weighing in at 1 pound 12 ½ ounces, Mary Catherine was called “Miracle Mary” by the nurses in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Four years later, Mary Catherine’s parents, Kelly and John, are the proud parents of two incredible children (a new baby boy born this year) and Mary Catherine is a healthy, happy child who loves to dance and play. The care she received at K. Hovnanian Children’s Hospital was the reason that her grandparents, Eugene and Judy Mulvaney, made a gift to The Next Step campaign for the expansion of a second acute care in-patient floor.
