Our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is a 40 bed level 3 nursery at Floating Hospital for Children at Tufts Medical Center and a destination for newborns that require complex care. We are family centered and focus on the care that each member of the family needs when an infant is born prematurely, has a congenital anomaly, or is has a complex condition. We provide advanced treatments including brain cooling, the latest ventilation techniques, extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), and sophisticated surgical approaches (such as mandibular distraction) not currently available elsewhere. Highly skilled and committed nurses and physicians treat every infant as if they were their own while also encouraging parent and family involvement. Family-centered rounds provides family members the opportunity to meet regularly with the multidisciplinary team of neonatologists, nurses, respiratory therapists, social workers, occupational and physical therapists, nutritionists, pediatric surgeons and other experts involved in the treatment plan. It's all part of our goal to build a lasting relationship with parents and their child.
