Former Patient Returns to the NICU to Give the Gift of Music

Twelve-year old Isabella Ciriello sat next to an incubator in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) at NewYork-Presbyterian Komansky Children's Hospital, classical guitar in hand. An accomplished musician who plays guitar, piano, and drums, Isabella was first exposed to music as a young patient at NYP Komansky Children’s Hospital. Born 16 weeks early, she spent weeks being cared for by the neonatal intenstive care team at the Komansky Hospital, which is affiliated with Weill Cornell Medicine's Department of Pediatrics.  Isabella returned to the same NICU unit to perform for a roomful of newborns as her way of giving back.
