Description August 'Larry' Jung MD in the NICU 1968 - When it came to caring for the youngest and sickest patients, newcomer August Jung, MD Class of '61, led the charge. With no budget for a neonatal intensive care unit, Jung forged ahead anyway, establishing the Mountain West region's first NICU in 1968. Administrators bought equipment in small amounts or borrowed it from medical equipment companies and other areas of University Medical Center to supply the NICU with heart-rate monitors, ventilators and other medical equipment. Dr Jung died in 2011.
