The birth of a baby is a wonderful yet very complex process. Many physical and emotional changes occur for mother and baby. A baby must make many physical adjustments to life outside the mother’s body. Leaving the uterus means that a baby can no longer depend on the mother’s circulation and placenta for important physiologic functions. When your new baby has a health concern that requires around-the-clock attention, be assured that the Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is the best possible place he could be. Here, your child will receive extraordinary care from experts with experience in caring for critically ill or premature newborns. Our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) are ready to provide the very best possible care 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
