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. To keep you well-informed, a physician or nurse practitioner will contact you daily with updates regarding your baby’s plan of care. There is a neonatologist in the hospital 24 hours a day, seven days a week to oversee the care of your baby.
