Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)
The Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Memorial Hospital West has been caring for neonate babies since 1996.
If your baby has been admitted to the NICU, it is because he or she requires more care than the Newborn Nursery can provide. At Memorial Hospital West, we are a level II NICU, providing some of the latest high-tech equipment and a highly trained staff for the care of your baby.
The NICU takes care of babies who:
- Are premature
- Experience complications at birth
- Have congenital anomalies
- Have infections
- Have low blood sugar
The NICU at Memorial Hospital West has the NICVIEW webcam system -- allowing you to see your newborn in the NICU from a computer or mobile device. The streaming video of your baby can only be accessed with a unique username and password. The NICVIEW system is free, easy to use and secure.
