February 2010, newborn Ben Hogan became the first to use life-saving
ECMO technology at Hasbro Children's Hospital.
Hogan was born at Kent County Hospital and developed complications
shortly after a normal birth. He was first sent to Women & Infants
Hospital and then rushed to Hasbro Children's Hospital, where ECMO life
support and doctors from both hospitals worked together to save his
life. The baby is now healthy and home with his parents, Mike and Julie,
and big sister Makayla.
