NICU

The neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) provides critical care to newborns who are ill or premature. Many factors may lead to a newborn being admitted to the NICU, including low birth weight or complications during delivery. The NICU staff works closely with parents to develop a treatment plan for their newborn.

When your baby needs extra medical support following birth, our Level III NICU team is here to provide specialized neonatal services.

Our 16-bed Level III NICU offers private family rooms fully equipped to provide the support and attention necessary for babies with a wide range of special needs. Every infant in the NICU is closely monitored by highly trained neonatologists, nurses, respiratory therapists and other healthcare professionals. We are committed to providing compassionate care and comprehensive support services for parents.

Family-centered NICU services

Our NICU is designed to allow for focused bonding with your baby while we offer the intensive individualized care your baby needs.

Features of our Level III NICU

  • Private NICU suites: We encourage both baby and mom (when mom is medically cleared and discharged) to room together in private NICU suites.
  • Designed for bonding: We include special recliners to promote bonding and “kangaroo” care, or skin-to-skin contact, with your baby.
  • Free Wi-Fi: We understand your priority is your newborn, and we want to help connect you to the resources and educational support you need during your baby’s stay with us.
  • Secured unit: We provide 24/7 security for the NICU to ensure the safety of your newborn.
  • Secure remote viewing access: If you or your family members need to leave the NICU, you will be able to view your newborn safely with our secured advanced monitoring access.
