Advanced Newborn Care NICU

Few parents-to-be expect to set foot in a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), but sometimes newborns need specialty care if they’re born premature, have a complication related to a difficult labor or delivery, or are showing signs of illness. 

If your tiny patient requires special care, the Deborah F. Sager Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Inspira Medical Center Vineland is an excellent choice right in your community. It’s the region’s only Subspecialty Newborn Care, level III NICU offering comprehensive care for newborns with a wide range of medical and surgical conditions.

Our experienced staff of pediatricians, neonatologists and specially trained nurses provide around-the-clock care for infants with low birthweights or critical illness. Inspira’s partnership with Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children means you’ll also have access to Nemours neonatologists and pediatric hospitalists who can assist with specialized care. The NICU team is staffed with neonatologists, neonatal nurses and a pediatric nurse practitioner for neonatal high-risk follow up.

Family-Centered Labor and Delivery 
At Inspira, we believe childbirth should be celebrated in a home-like environment designed to foster a sense of peace and safety. Inspira offers private rooms in which families can stay from admission to discharge. They’re designed to feel more like home than a hospital, but still have all the safety and security access features for moms and babies. The family waiting area offers convenience and comfort for our patients and their families.
