Babies are referred to us by some 30 hospitals in four counties.

High-Risk Transportation

As a regionally designated referral center for seriously ill newborns, NBIMC maintains a transport team of doctors and nurses. A specially equipped ambulance is available 24 hours a day to bring infants to the NICU.

Regional SIDS & Apnea Program

This program provides consultation, evaluation, monitoring equipment and outpatient follow-up for babies at risk for developing sudden infant death syndrome or who suffer from breathing irregularities or apnea.

High-Risk Infant Follow-Up Program

Through this program, each infant discharged from the NICU is periodically evaluated for at least two years. The evaluations help detect any possible developmental delays or other problems associated with prematurity while in the nursery and after discharge. Multidisciplinary staff assesses each child's growth and development. The staff makes any necessary recommendations for consultation or therapy.
