Neonatal Intensive Care Unit

Most births happen without any complications. But our 15-bed Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is down the hall from The Birth Place, just in case. We are the only Level III NICU in greater Nashua. We care for babies with many different problems, such as infections and birth defects, and most commonly, prematurity. Some of our babies are as small as 2 ¼ pounds or as young as 28 weeks. Most are born here but others transfer here for specialized care, close to family, until they’re ready to go home. 

Your baby’s specialized team includes:
  • Neonatologists and pediatric hospitalists (doctors who specialize in the care of sick and premature newborns)
  • Registered nurses specializing in neonatal care
  • Neonatal nurse practitioner
  • Respiratory therapists
  • Nutritionists
  • Social workers
  • Lactation (breastfeeding) consultants
Because you play a vital role in your baby’s recovery, you’re welcome day and night. We have quiet, private areas where you and your family can have time alone with your baby. We work with you to provide the best care for your baby’s medical and developmental needs.
