Should an emergency arise, it’s comforting to know that Moses Taylor Hospital has a Level 3A Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) right in Family Birthing Suites – with our physicians and staff ready at a moment’s notice. Our NICU is designed to allow for more control of artificial and natural lighting, as well as significant noise reduction that will lower an infant’s stress levels. Private rooms are uniquely designed to suit the needs of premature or critically ill newborns. State-of-the-art monitoring technology enables staff to observe every infant’s condition.
As children in the NICU develop, the room can be used more traditionally, allowing more family members to interact with their newest family member. Each room has a small refrigerator for storing breast milk and plenty of storage. The NICU at Moss Taylor Hospital is one of only a few in the United States to offer the quiet, controlled atmosphere of private rooms. This unique environment helps foster the developmental care that babies need and allows families to be closer to their newest family member.
