Our New NICU
A level II neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) is open at St. Joseph’s Hospital-South. The 10-bed unit, gives newborns and their moms specialized, around-the-clock care from highly trained neonatologists, obstetric and pediatric hospitalists and board-certified maternal fetal medicine physicians and certified nurses.
This family centered NICU provides individualized care and a comforting environment for the whole family. Moms can stay in the baby’s room during their stay, and all the specialized care needed is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
In the event that your baby needs an even higher-level care, we can transport them to our level IV NICU at St. Joseph’s Women’s Hospital.
