NICU Stands Ready When Newborns Need Help

Expectant parents hope that their baby will be born healthy without complications.  But, if problems can arise, Doctors Hospital can provide specialized care in its Level II 24-hour NICU.  While some babies stay in the NICU for only a few hours for observational care, others may spend weeks receiving specialized care.

Skilled Team Provides Level II Care

The NICU team consists of trained, dedicated neonatologists, neonatal practitioners and neonatal nurses. Neonatologists have completed three additional years of training to specialize in the care of critically ill newborns and are qualified to handle some of the most complex, high-risk situations. 

 
 

The staff provides hands-on care and specialized treatment for infections, birth defects, breathing difficulties, growth restriction and maternal health problems. In addition to babies born premature or at a low birth weight, sicker full-term babies may be treated in the NICU for a variety of conditions, including anemia, jaundice, seizures, low blood sugar or breathing difficulties.
