Neonatal Intensive Care Units

Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICU)

Baptist Medical Center South (BMCS) and Baptist Medical Center East (BMCE) together create the Regional Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (R-NICU) of Baptist Health, which is one of five regional units in the state. BMCE has a daily census of 21 infants and recently unveiled their expanded NICU. The addition cost an estimated $2 million, $500,000 of which was donated by the Baptist Health Care Foundation. In 1998, BMCS increased its bed capacity from 26 to 40 beds, which accommodates approximately 33 distressed infants daily. Furthermore, in an effort to comfort mothers, NICU is equipped with "room-in" quarters where mothers can receive personal training and assistance from nurses, as it relates to the care of their new infants.

Both units are equipped with state-of-the-art equipment for diagnosis and treatment of critically ill newborns. Care for these newborns is provided by our team of highly skilled and dedicated neonatologists, nurses, respiratory therapists, and emergency technicians.

In addition, both NICUs utilize the services of Angel One, a transport vehicle specially designed for safe and long distance travel. Angel One comes equipped with technology that better facilitates the needs of the newborns and expecting mothers.
