Neonatal Intensive Care Unit

neonatalWe wish no baby ever needed special care. But problems can arise. Fortunately, our Level II Neonatal Intensive Care Unit is ready to provide specialized medical care for babies in a warm, caring environment.

Our specially trained staff can care for premature babies born at 32 weeks or later, and full-term babies with certain medical conditions. Babies may be admitted because of medical problems present at birth that require close monitoring, or because they weigh too little at birth.

Our medical team strives to provide the best care possible to infants. They also understand the stress that accompanies having a newborn in the NIC Unit, and are sensitive to families’ needs. To the extent possible, they foster parents’ involvement in their babies’ care.
