Multidisciplinary NICU services we offer
Babies who are born prematurely or with an illness often require specialized care. In the NICU, babies receive 24/7 monitoring and individualized treatment services for conditions such as difficulty breathing, heart irregularities, infections or birth abnormalities. To be sure your baby gets the care they need, an experienced multidisciplinary team works to develop the best treatment plan for each infant, including specialists in pulmonology, cardiology and endocrinology.
