KNOXVILLE - The new $75 million Neonatal Intensive Care Unit facility at the East Tennessee Children's Hospital is set to open in a few weeks. 

Hospital staff welcomed families to tour the new tower Sunday with a ribbon cutting ceremony beforehand. 

Families were able to see inside the NICU including a few of the 44 new patient rooms. 

The Graham family, whose three children were born premature, was amazed at the transformation and the changes. 

"It’s incredible. We were in the NICU for 177 days with Ayden and 41 with [Brayden] and although we love the NICU, this is going to make the experience so much better," Jenny Corbett shared alongside her partner Joe Graham. 

While on the tour, Jenny wiped away a few tears because she lost one of her twins, Ayden while in the NICU this year. Ayden's twin Brayden survived.
