Special Support for Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) Families

Our team works to create an environment focused on patient- and family-centered care. We take extra steps to make sure parents and family members are included in their baby’s medical care plan. Parents may spend as much time at their child’s bedside as they like. And siblings are welcome in the unit to get to know their new brother or sister. Siblings are not allowed in the NICU during cold and flu season, and immunization records are always required. Parent-to-parent support and family education are available to all NICU families. Additional support services include:

  • NicView – This camera system is placed near your baby’s bed to provide a secure video stream. You can look in on your baby from any computer, smartphone or tablet with an internet connection.

To receive access to NicView, contact your nurse or physician. If you are already set up, log in today.

  • Pastoral care
  • Social services
  • Discharge planning and case management
  • Family education about equipment use and newborn illnesses
