Neonatal intensive care unit
The neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) serves babies who need specialized care in their first hours to weeks of life.
Our NICU teams provide around-the-clock care for sick or premature newborns. Your baby may need our care if they have:
- a breathing problem
- a lung condition
- a heart defect or condition
- feeding issues
- an infection
- other medical conditions
Families are an important part of a baby’s care. You are welcome to stay at your baby’s bedside 24 hours a day.
To keep you and your baby safe, we ask that you:
- clean your hands every time you enter the NICU
- do not visit the NICU if you are feeling sick
- ensure any children visiting the NICU are up-to-date on their routine vaccines
We encourage parents to invite their loved ones to visit their baby in the NICU. Visitors must be accompanied by the baby’s parents unless you make arrangements with the unit.
