Neonatal Intensive Care Unit

Neonatal Intensive Care Unit

The 18-bed Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center is one of only a handful of hospitals in Boston that provides the most advanced care and technology for premature and critically ill newborns. St. Elizabeth's is affiliated with Children’s Hospital Boston to provide our most vulnerable patients access to some of the best medical treatment in the world. Neonatologists from St. Elizabeth's and Children's Hospital Boston provide onsite neonatal services at the St. Elizabeth's NICU 24 hours a day, seven days a week. In the event that St. Elizabeth's patients require the most critical care, they have access to the specialty services offered at Children's Hospital Boston. We strive to serve the entire family, making you comfortable and providing a wide range of support from overnight rooms to spiritual and social services. Our physicians, nurses and other staff members work closely with parents so they can participate in their babies' care in the unit and feel confident about caring for their newborn at home.
