Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)

What is the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit?

The Neonatal Intensive Care Units (ICU) provide the highest level of care for sick or premature infants. The unit also provides help to families during this stressful time, and prepares them for taking their infants home.

Upon admission to the Neonatal ICU, infants are put into an incubator (isolette) and their heart and respiration rates are monitored. Other medical equipment may be used as needed for the infants' care. A neonatologist visits and examines the patients.
