Newborn ICU

For more than 25 years, St. Mary's Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU) has been the leader in NICU care in the Tri-State area, providing not only excellent care to our patients, but family-friendly services that allow parents to stay in their community, close to their families and local resources. Our commitment to the family extends to our relationship with their primary doctors, in order to provide a smooth transition for baby, from the hospital to home.
