Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)
Technically Advanced Care for Those in the Palm of Our Hand
Though most babies are born healthy, some babies - those born premature or critically ill - require advanced medical care immediately after delivery. For these times, there's no substituting the comfort of knowing that the Betty H. Cameron Women's and Children's Hospital is home to a Level III, 45-bed Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), southeastern North Carolina's first. Here, premature or critically ill babies - some the size of the palm of your hand - receive technically advanced, lifesaving care aimed at optimizing infant wellness. Other benefits of the NICU include developmentally supportive care, where human touch is used to promote a baby's emotional wellness.
Just minutes from Labor and Delivery, our NICU continues the hospital's commitment to family-centered care by providing generous family space for loved-ones to gather during this time.
Features and amenities include:
Technologically advanced neonatal monitors
5 nationally recognized neonatologists
