Neonatal Intensive Care Units

Specialized, safe, and quality care for newborns

The Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICUs) are specially staffed and equip to care for premature and high-risk newborns.

Our three NICUs are able to look after newborns as premature as 30 weeks. Care is provided by an interprofessional team including physicians, nurses, occupational therapists, social workers, respiratory therapists, and lactation consultants. Admission to the NICU is determined by the health care team following the birth.

Services provided in the NICU include:

  • Ophthalmology
  • Cardiology
  • Orthopaedics
  • Plastics
  • Ear, nose, and throat
  • Consultation with SickKids Hospital

At our Centenary site, our inpatient unit features a Ronald McDonald Charity Family Room.
