In 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.
