The Level IIB Neonatal Intensive Care Unit is located on the first floor of the Our Lady of Mercy (OLM) Wing. With the physical capacity for 20 isolettes, the NICU provides care to newborns requiring intensive care and supports short-term ventilation of pre-term infants 32 weeks gestation or more.
A Lactation Consultant is available to support breast feeding. The Nursery also features two Care-by-Parent Rooms to facilitate bonding between the pre-term infant and mother prior to discharge. Other features to the NICU include one negative pressure isolation room and a 24-hour family lounge.
The NICU is located side by side the Family Birthing Centre with central access to the two Operating Rooms, meaning that there will be better coordination of care, speed of service and improved response and transport times.
