Neonatal Intensive Care Unit

Neonatal Intensive Care Unit

Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) provides care for newborn babies that are either sick and/ or born much earlier than their due date (before 37 weeks) and require medical/surgical support. The word “neonatal” means newborn or less than 28 days of age. Doctors looking after neonates are called Neonatologists. 

Most of the babies are born without any problems. Occasionally some babies need additional medical assistance. Such babies are admitted to NICU to provide them the support that they need. There can be many reasons for admission to NICU. We at Kangaroo Care Hospitals, with our team of experienced neonatologists and neonatal nurses, strive to provide the best care to your baby.
