Fort Bend resident Edelweiss C. Hearne BSN, RNC  was awarded a Reba Michels Hill Award, given to Neonatology non-physicians who have made a significant contribution to advancing the quality to which Dr. Hill was dedicated: compassionate commitment to education, patient care, research and family.

Hearne is a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) nurse at Texas Children’s Pavilion for Women and has been a nurse for 11 and a half years, with 10 of those years serving as a neonatal ICU nurse at Texas Children’s.

Hearne says that her favorite part of her job as a neonatal nurse is taking care of the tiniest and most critically ill patients and their families and having the privilege of seeing these babies grow up to lead happy, healthy lives.
