A Healing Environment

The Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU) combines a quiet, healing environment with leading edge medical and technical care.

The unit has 12,000 square feet devoted to patient and family care, and blends high-tech and high-touch elements.

Private Patient Rooms

Private rooms provide a peaceful setting where new parents can nurture and bond with their babies, and gain confidence in caring for them. Moms can work on breastfeeding skills, too.

The room equipment and supplies for the medical and nursing staff are nearest the door; the bassinette, life-sustaining technology and baby supplies are in the middle; and a sleeper sofa and storage cabinets for parents are near the window. Also, seven rooms have the flexibility to accommodate families with multiple births.
