In 2016, Saint Luke’s renamed its ECMO program the Kevin K. Nunnink ECMO Program. Nunnink was one of Saint Luke’s first patients to undergo ECMO therapy.
To continue his legacy, a foundation was established in his honor. Today, the Kevin K. Nunnink Foundation provides much-needed funds for cardiac research to help prevent and cure heart disease.
Thanks to ongoing support and generosity from the foundation, Saint Luke’s has been able to expand its program with additional ECMO machines—saving even more lives.
