Neonatal Intensive Care

 

In the event your baby should require specialized treatment, our dedicated and highly-trained neonatal intensive care team will monitor your baby’s health 24 hours a day. Our NICU provides cutting-edge services for prematurely born infants or full-term infants who are otherwise medically compromised.

Flushing Hospital Medical Center’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit is a Level 3 NICU. Our unit is located on the fifth floor adjacent to the Labor and Delivery Unit and Mother-Baby Unit.

Our NICU provides expert newborn care for premature and seriously ill babies. Our expert neonatologists, experienced nursing staff and other health professionals are dedicated to providing the best and most advanced care possible to newborns with critical health challenges.

The NICU team will guide parents, educate, and communicate with them throughout their newborn’s progress. We welcome parents 24 hours a day and encourage them to touch, hold and feed their babies as much as possible.
