A Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is a highly specialized center for premature and special needs newborns and infants. Everyone on our staff is dedicated to the health and well being of your baby. To help newborns get healthy, out of the hospital system and into their homes with their parents sooner, techniques such as kangaroo care are employed (allowing skin-to-skin contact of a baby with its mother). These techniques have proven to decrease the length of the stay and to promote infant-mother bonding while encouraging the mother to breast-feed her child.
To help put your mind at ease, our NICU offers the highest level of care available. Our Level III NICU is a 16-bed unit located on the second floor adjacent to the Labor and Delivery unit and is staffed by our experienced team of board certified neonatologists, providing the ultimate in safety and comfort for your new bundle of joy.
