NICU

The neonatal intensive care unit 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.

Level II Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) in Trinity, Florida

At HCA Florida Trinity Hospital, we know that babies who are born prematurely or with serious medical conditions need advanced care.

That's why the neonatal specialists at our Level II NICU offer diagnostics, treatments and family-centered care to our youngest patients in need. Our NICU team of neonatal doctors and nurses will be there for your baby to make sure they receive the advanced care they need in a healing environment.

Our neonatal care program

Our Level II NICU is equipped with state-of-the-art technology and staffed by highly trained neonatologists and other skilled medical professionals. 

Features of our NICU

We offer our tiniest patients and their families the following specialized amenities:

  • 12 Level II NICU beds
  • An overnight "nesting room" for families transitioning to taking their baby home (allowing parents to practice caring for their babies in a soothing, home-like environment before they leave the hospital)
  • Family-friendly environment
  • Free Wi-Fi
  • Guided breastfeeding
  • Maternity photography (for a fee)
  • Recliners to promote bonding and skin-to-skin ("kangaroo") care

Secure NICU live video streaming

With our secure video streaming system, parents of NICU infants can watch their baby in real-time, even when they are away. An unobtrusive camera, which is connected to the internet, is mounted closely to the newborn's bed, delivering streamed video images around the clock. Our live streaming is only accessible to specified users with passwords issued by our NICU.

Other advantages of our NICU live video streaming service include:

  • Designed for use by family and relatives of all ages and in all locations
  • Simple, secure sign-in access (no software downloads)
  • 24/7 customer and technical support team available

Family-centered neonatal care

Our goal is to support your baby with family-centered care. This has been associated with numerous benefits, including:

  • Better mental health outcomes
  • Decreased length of hospital stay
  • Enhanced parent-infant attachment and bonding
  • Greater patient and family satisfaction
  • Improved well-being of preterm infants
