Offering documented survival rates higher than the national average, our
NICU is fully equipped to serve the needs of our patients. However, to
ensure that we continue meeting the needs of our tiniest and most
vulnerable patients, we must regularly enhance or replace our equipment.
This includes updating:
Phototherapy systems, which are necessary reduce jaundice level and to prevent high levels of bilirubin that can cause brain damage;
Hard cribs, which allow infants that are here for months, or larger babies, to have a developmentally appropriate bed for stimulation and growth;
Radiant heaters, which maintain stable temperatures for NICU care and ensure that infants can be watched continuously;
Neonatal transport incubators, which keep infants warm and stable with life-saving respiratory therapy while they are being transported.
