Most babies are born healthy and full term. But when a newborn arrives early or requires special care, the neonatologists, neonatal nurse practitioners and specially trained nurses in Greenwich Hospital’s Level III-B Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) are available round-the-clock.

The NICU team works closely with maternal fetal medicine physicians and obstetricians to anticipate the needs of new families. Parents of babies in the NICU can find respite in the comfortable and private NICU family lounge located next to the main maternity lounge. The lounge offers internet access and educational materials.

“Having a child in the NICU can be challenging for parents,” said Stylianos Theofanidis, MD, director of Neonatology at Greenwich Hospital. “Our doctors and nurses are committed to providing high-quality care to newborns as well as addressing the emotional needs of their parents.”
