Level III Neonatal IntensiveCare

Expert Care for Tiny Patients

Neonatal IntensiveCare at Stormont-Vail HealthCare was founded on a tradition of compassionate, expert care for critical babies in 1985.

The unit offers 27 spacious private rooms, specially designed to accommodate state-of-the-art neonatal care equipment. From a centralized nursing station, all babies can be monitored and cared for individually in private quiet, light-controlled environments that enhance the little ones’ ability to thrive.

Stormont-Vail Neonatal IntensiveCare offers families privacy, comfortable in-room visiting space and personal storage areas.

The unit is staffed with five neonatologists, four neonatal nurse practitioners, and two social workers along with a dedicated, experienced nursing staff.

After the infant’s discharge, the Neonatal IntensiveCare staff continues to offer support for parents through follow-up clinics for infants at risk of developmental delays.

Parent support services include:

  • Extensive, flexible visiting hours for family
  • Sleep rooms for families of critical patients
  • Sleep rooms for families to stay with their infant overnight prior to going home
  • Access to the Ronald McDonald House
  • Grief and loss support
  • March of Dimes NICU Family Support Program   

 

In 2014 the Neonatal IntensiveCare department received the PRC’s 5-Star Excellence Award in Quality of Care. To be a PRC 5-Star Excellence Award winner, hospitals are judged against all other health care organizations in similar categories within PRC’s nationwide databases. 5-Star Award Winners are identified as the top 10 percent (at or above the 90th percentile) of PRC’s national client database.
