We practice family-centered care. Parents will not be considered visitors in our NICU, and will be encouraged to visit their baby as much as possible. Babies in the NICU will be able to have parents and authorized visitors with them 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Each year The Medical Center hosts the NICU Reunion to bring former NICU patients and families together. The reunion is a fun-filled event that provides an opportunity to reunite with the NICU staff who cared for the babies during their stay in the hospital.
