Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)
Sometimes, infants are born needing specialized medical or surgical care.
These infants receive around-the-clock attention in The Charles A. Mastronardi Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), one of the most advanced Level III neonatal intensive care units in the tristate region.
This state-of-the-art unit provides all the technological support that a baby may need, from advanced monitoring to respiratory and nutritional support to radiology to physical therapy.
It even features special lighting: twinkling fiber-optic stars on the ceiling that simulate day and night.
A team of 40 specially-trained neonatal nurses, working closely with six board-certified neonatologists, deliver an unrivaled level of individualized care.
Our large nursing staff keeps our patient-to-nurse ratio low—often one nurse for every baby.
Families of NICU babies form lifelong relationships with the unit’s nurses and doctors, and can participate in the Neonatal Parents Network, which provides ongoing support and education for parents whose babies have “graduated” from the unit.
