Neonatal Intensive Care (NICU)

High risk deliveries & newborn care

 

Maimonides Medical Center is a NYS-designated Regional Perinatal Center (RPC), in recognition of excellence in the delivery of maternity and neonatal care. As part of our services at the Children's Hospital, we provide care in a newly renovated, state-of-the-art Neonatology Intensive Care Unit (NICU). In-house coverage by a board-certified neonatologist is provided 24 hours a day, seven days a week for all high-risk deliveries and care in the NICU.

Our outstanding physicians, nurses, respiratory therapists, speech therapists, physical and occupational therapists, social workers and patient representatives offer a full complement of pediatric subspecialists in the NICU, and represent the best in medical excellence and care.

While our primary focus is on the care of the child, we also take into account the needs of the entire family. Parents, siblings, grandparents and other loved ones who are a part of the family unit are seen as integral elements of the neonate's health and are included in care decisions at every step. We encourage prospective parents and families to ask questions and learn about the care their child is receiving.
