All newborns at Women & Children’s Hospital of Buffalo will receive blankets and a future first round draft pick certificate as Buffalo Sabres President Ted Black announced on New Year’s Day that the team will continue to do throughout 2014.

This yellow newborn blanket and certificate, adorned with the Buffalo Sabres and Buffalo Baby logos with “’14” to denote the year, are gifts from the Buffalo Sabres to all newborns throughout 2014 as it did in 2013.

Women & Children’s Hospital of Buffalo offers women the best option for delivering their baby as the only hospital in Western New York with a team of pediatric surgeons and a full panel of pediatric medical subspecialists on site, including the region’s largest and most advanced neonatal intensive care unit.

More information about these centers or other maternity services at Women & Children’s Hospital of Buffalo is available online at www.BuffaloBaby.org. This website for Buffalo Baby, the brand for maternity services provided by Kaleida Health at Women & Children’s Hospital of Buffalo and MillardFillmoreSuburbanHospital, is designed for expectant and new parents.

The Buffalo Sabres are strong and long time supporters of Women & Children’s Hospital of Buffalo, its patients and their families:

- Several players from the Buffalo Sabres recently attended the annual holiday party for patients and their families who are members of Stone’s Buddies, a network of chronically ill children followed by Women & Children’s Hospital of Buffalo.  The players frosted cookies and make crafts while visiting with the children and their families during this holiday celebration.

During that visit, the Sabres presented Tyler Colson, 2, and his family with their prize of an autographed Mark Pysyk team jersey as winner of the Buffalo Baby-Buffalo Sabres Facebook Photo Contest:

This contest invites parents of babies delivered at Women & Children’s Hospital to submit photo’s of their child with Buffalo Sabres memorabilia.  Tyler’s photo received the most “likes” when posted on the Facebook page for Women & Children’s Hospital and was declared winner for the month of November.  This monthly contest continues in January.  For more information go online at www.wchob.org/contest
