Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit
Our designation as a Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) means we are better equipped to care for ill or premature newborns than many other hospitals.
Our NICU offers:
- Gentle, yet critical neonatal care—Our NICU specialists are able to care for babies born before 32 weeks and/or weighing less than 3.3 pounds.
- Leading neonatal expertise— We have an entire team dedicated to the care of your newborn. Our experienced team is led by neonatologists (doctors with advanced training in caring for sick or premature newborns) who are on-call and immediately available 24/7. The team also includes in house 24/7 Neonatal Nurse Practitioners, respiratory therapists, occupational therapist, physical therapist, social worker/case management workers, and lactation consultants.
- Parents are encouraged and should be actively involved with their baby for the duration of the infant’s hospitalization. Recliner chairs are at the bedside to allow parents personal time with their infant by skin to skin holding, snuggled holding, as well as resting and napping between care times for infant. While parents may remain with their baby for the entire duration, we strongly encourage them to get the rest they need, as they are a critical part of their baby’s care team.
- Breast pumps are available for moms to pump at their baby’s bedside behind privacy curtains. Our nursing team will ensure appropriate storage of your breast milk.
- Appropriate developmental care for premature babies who need quiet, less light, and gentle stimulation.
- A rooming-in room will be made available for parents who need practice alone with their infant prior to discharge to home.
- Support for immature lungs—we have the specialized respiratory equipment and staff necessary to treat babies who have trouble breathing.
- Access to donor milk—if your baby needs more breast milk than you can supply, we offer human milk from donors through our partnership with Children’s Hospital of the King’s Daughters in Norfolk, Virginia. This means your baby can continue to receive the health benefits of breast milk.
Family-centered NICU support
Our NICU also serves as a quiet, nurturing space for your family to spend time with your little one.
To support you and your family, we offer:
- Extended visitation—You can stay by your baby's side almost 24 hours a day. Our NICU only limits visitors during two, hour-long shift changes at 6:30am and 6:30pm.
- Unlimited bonding—We encourage you to spend plenty of hands-on time holding or feeding your baby.
- Visitation may be restricted, during widespread viruses such as COVID19 to protect our patients and staff. Please check with your physician or nurse on current or future restrictions.
Following delivery, you will experience family-centered postpartum care that puts your baby at your bedside, 24 hours a day (unless we need to care for them in our NICU). Your partner or designated support person may also stay with you.
Throughout your recovery, your specially trained nurse will be available to provide you with care, support and education. Our method of care enables our nurses to spend more time in your room when you need coaching—such as breastfeeding help—encouragement or advice.
