Our 50-bed Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is within the NewYork-Presbyterian Phyllis and David Komansky Children's Hospital, and provides a wide range of newborn services specially tailored for individualized care of extremely premature neonates and newborn infants requiring medical or surgical intervention.
A full range of pediatric consultants attracts the transfer of sick infants from multiple hospitals. Comprehensive surgical care is provided by general, cardiothoracic, urology, plastic, maxillofacial facial and neuro-surgery physicians. The Department of Pediatrics offers consultation by all pediatric subspecialties.
An active newborn service with 6000 deliveries per year includes an extensive infertility program and high-risk obstetrics. Prenatal counseling during high risk pregnancies is provided in a close collaboration with obstetricians and perinatologists.
Healthy newborns are cared for in the family centered "well baby" newborn nursery. A seven-bed Continuing Care Nursery is a part of the larger Well Baby Nursery and provides care for healthy infants with minor medical problems.


If you recently learned your baby has a disorder or abnormality that requires special care,or if you have a high-risk condition that makes your pregnancy complex, the Fetal Care Center can help meet your needs.
