Logan Leonard was just two days old when he was diagnosed with a serious
health condition. Tests revealed that little Logan had Hirschsprung disease,
symptoms of which appear in the first 48 hours of life. He lacks special
nerve cells in his intestinal muscles, which can lead to obstruction,
infection and other serious problems.
Logan’s parents, Elizabeth and Daniel, are thankful for the quick
thinking of our staff. “You hear stories of hospitals sending babies
home, not recognizing symptoms,” says Elizabeth. “I’m
so grateful Huntington Hospital had the expertise. They discovered everything
immediately and everyone came together to help our son.”
Logan would need several surgeries - the first at only five days old.
He spent ten weeks in our NICU and after his next phase of treatment,
he received care for two months in our pediatric unit. He is now at home
with his family.
“Logan’s thriving,” says Elizabeth, “and I can’t
describe how grateful we are. Everyone was so kind. There are no words
to thank them for what they did for our son.”

For Healthcare Professionals
Not all hospitals provide the necessary services for physicians dealing
with children and babies who need a higher level of care. Huntington Memorial
Hospital has a broad range of services, including
wrap-around cooling, and
minimally invasive surgery to support the needs of those young patients who require a level of care
not always available in every healthcare setting.
If you have a patient that requires a transfer to a facility such as ours,
or need services that your organization does not provide, Huntington Hospital
has many treatment options that set us apart in our care for young patients
with the highest levels of acuity.
To arrange for a transport or to speak to a Huntington Hospitalphysician,

Immediate Care & Long-Term Support
We not only care for children, but for their
families too. We offer social work services, weekly family support meetings, and
have a Ronald McDonald House directly across the street. Parents are able
to stay with their children overnight and if they don’t wish to
leave the room to eat, we are happy to bring their meals to them.
