Danielle Murphy

Joseph Brant Hospital is a special place for the Murphy family, with Danielle having received excellent care during her pregnancies, and they want to give back to the hospital and the Maternal Child Unit.

This year the Murphy family’s home at 5031 Spruce Avenue in Burlington will be decorated front and back with over 150 inflatables for Christmas.

“Every year people try to give us money for the joy it brings their families to visit and walk the grounds, so this year we will be accepting donations for the hospital,” says Danielle.

Both her daughter and son were born at Joseph Brant Hospital, most recently her son Hudson was born in March 2020 at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“The best thing about Joseph Brant Hospital is how all the nurses and doctors go above and beyond their job to make sure you are cared for,” says Danielle.  Danielle was looked after by Dr. Stella Psarakis and Dr. Paul Wu for her fibroid surgery.  With Dr. Wu aiding Danielle with her fertility and pregnancy related concerns.

Danielle came to the Emergency Room with high blood pressure. The ER physician brought in Dr. Wu, who told Danielle that she was going to her baby that day. Immediately, Danielle was admitted and underwent an emergency caesarean.

“Hudson had to stay in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) for two weeks. The physicians explained to me how the medical machines were helping Hudson and they introduced me to the nurses on shift and walked me through everything,” says Danielle, “They listened to what I had to say, and valued my input.”
