Video Tour: Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)
Within the Family Birthplace, the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) cares Bryan's tiniest patients, some will be here only a day or two and others who will spend several months getting ready to go out into the world.
We involve families in their baby's care. Families are part of the team that includes neonatologists, neonatal nurse practitioners, NICU nurses, speech, occupational, physical and respiratory therapists, pharmacists, dietitians, social workers and lactation specialists.
A family-centered environment – with private rooms, sleeping couches, refrigerators, laundry and shower facilities, food delivery, self-serve nutrition centers and family lounges – helps families feel at home while allowing them not only to be involved in their baby's care, but also to stay close while still maintaining some sense of daily life and family relationships.
Our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit is located on the third floor of the Family Birthplace and offers:
Advanced Level III NICU capable of treating babies as young as 23 weeks
23 private rooms
All rooms are specially engineered to provide the optimal environment for the developmental care and comfort of our tiniest patients
Newest technology infant warmers
Adjoining suites for multiple births
Surgical suite for high risk deliveries
24/7 neonatology and neonatal practitioner coverage
