We understand the joy and anticipation that comes with awaiting your newborn’s arrival, but what if that day comes sooner than expected or with complications? Rest assured, we’re here to provide compassionate, first-rate care every step of the way.

What is Neonatal Care?

Neonatal care is a specialized branch of medicine that focuses on the health and well-being of newborn infants, particularly those born prematurely or with medical complexities. At Inspira, we understand that the arrival of a newborn, while joyous, can also be accompanied by unexpected challenges.

Whether your newborn requires respiratory support, nutritional interventions, or close monitoring for developmental milestones, we’re here to offer personalized care. Our facilities include Level 2 and Level 3 Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICUs), equipped with state-of-the-art technology and staffed by highly trained professionals experienced in managing a range of medical conditions commonly encountered in newborns. 

How Neonatal Care Works

Inspira’s partnership with Nemours Children’s Health, a nationally recognized pediatric hospital, ensures access to top-tier pediatric and neonatal specialists. Our Level 2 NICU and Level 3 NICU provide advanced care and technology for newborns. In our NICU nursery, infants receive specialized care for conditions like respiratory distress, jaundice, or feeding difficulties. Our team of neonatologists, nurses, and therapists tailor individualized care. At the Deborah F. Sager NICU, our highly trained staff offers around-the-clock care for premature and critically ill infants. With state-of-the-art technology and a multidisciplinary team, including neonatologists, pediatric surgeons, and nurses, we handle complex cases with expertise and compassion. Our family-centered NICU provides amenities like family lounges and support services, ensuring you and your loved ones feel supported during your time with us.
