Our Family Centered Approach -- allows parents to overcome the emotional strain encountered by the birth of a sick infant. We have two family rooms for parents who may wish to stay over night in the NICU. Families will benefit from the open visiting policy and the emphasis on open communication with physicians and nurses. You, as the parents, are considered a very important member of this specialized team. The staff of the NICU supports our families and provides them with much needed informational resources and community services.

Our Goal is to Send Babies Home to Their Families
