The Most Experienced Team Of Neonatal Specialists
Our NICU team is composed of world-renowned neonatologists, specialized nurses, medical resident physicians, and a multidisciplinary team of support specialists. It’s a close-knit group that works round-the-clock and is able to address any need at a moment’s notice.
An Environment That Supports Excellent Outcomes
Our experienced NICU nurses and staff create an environment that promotes comfort and stability, encouraging growth and development. Babies are snuggled and maintained in fetal position with special positioning aids to support their natural growth and development as if in utero. Parents are encouraged to visit, feed and bond with their baby as often as possible, even if the baby is on a ventilator. Kangaroo Care is private bonding time that has a positive impact on both baby and parents. Family is the most important and constant factor in the life of an infant; University of Cincinnati Medical Center’s NICU welcomes family visits nearly 24-hours a day. Parents are encouraged to participate in daily rounds with the NICU team. To respect the privacy and safety of the families involved, our unit is safe and secure, utilizing screened admittance and camera access for constant visitor surveillance. Visitors are also coached on good hand washing techniques before admittance to the unit to promote the most safe and infection-free environment for your infant.
