Neonatal Intensive Care Unit
The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at North Oaks Medical Center is designed to provide for the special needs of the hospital's smallest patients. With advanced equipment and personnel trained in the care of babies born prematurely or with other health problems, the unit is equipped to successfully care for infants weighing less than two pounds. In addition to a highly trained staff, the NICU team also includes a full-time neonatologist, assuring parents that, should the need arise, special care is close to home.
The North Oaks NICU is ranked among the top 25% in the U.S. according to the prestigious Vermont Oxford Study in their review of patient outcomes in selected areas.
