GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

With the completion of a new $6 million state of the art Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, Memorial Hospital in Gulfport recently celebrated a decade of growth.

The new unit, which is the only NICU on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, has 11 semi-private rooms and 23 beds. Part of the massive infrastructure project included the addition of two floors to the main patient tower, and a nearly 50 percent increase patient room size.

The hospital celebrated with two ribbon cuttings on August 19, one on each new floor.
