Neonatal Intensive Care

The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit or NICU, is the hospital unit where premature and critically ill newborns receive the special care they need. Here, a treatment team lead by board-certified neonatologists provides around-the-clock attention and sophisticated intensive care for these infants. The unit is staffed by dedicated professionals who are specially trained in this field. The types of medical challenges treated in the unit may include:

  • Pre-term birth - babies born at 23 weeks gestation and weighing at least 1 pound
  • Babies born with an infection
  • Babies born with a congenital anomaly, such as spina bifida, bowel conditions and heart defects
  • Babies that require a higher level of care than given in traditional mother/baby units
