One of the first lessons of parenting is to expect the unexpected. When planning for the arrival of a new baby, you probably don’t anticipate needing a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). However, if your baby is born prematurely or develops any complications after birth, comprehensive care is vital. Here’s why you should choose a hospital with a NICU.
Families count the days waiting for their baby to arrive, but what if that day comes too soon or with complications?
Through our partnership with Nemours Children's Health, a nationally recognized pediatric hospital, Inspira Health provides access to experienced pediatric and neonatal care, including a Neonatal Intermediate Care Unit nursery at Inspira Medical Center Mullica Hill and the Deborah F. Sager Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Inspira Medical Center Vineland.
