While the majority of newborn infants are born healthy, more intense monitoring and care are sometimes necessary. Babies who need specialized attention because of premature birth or medical conditions are cared for in our state-of-the-art Level III+ Lundy Family Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Our NICU has sophisticated equipment specially designed to care for critically- ill newborns in an environment that fosters healthy development.
Most importantly, NICU patients benefit from the continuous care and observation of Johns Hopkins’ neonatologists, neonatal nurse practitioners, physician assistants and registered nurses who are experienced with the special needs of newborn premature babies.
Many infants brought to our NICU have relatively mild conditions that require only short-term monitoring. In the event a baby has a more serious surgical or cardiac condition, he or she may be transported to Johns Hopkins Hospital for specialized care.
