Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)

NICU's Mission

At South Shore Hospital, our family-centered care is the primary reason why we’ve become the region’s number one choice for maternity care.

Family-centered care means honoring patient and family preferences. Our approach is built on five principles:

  1. Respect
  2. Information sharing
  3. Collaboration
  4. Family-to-family support
  5. Confidence building

When you combine our philosophy with our medical and nursing expertise and our partnerships with world-renowned academic medical centers, families experience an ideal blend of skill and compassion.

Our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit Staff believes:

  • In caring for babies with tenderness and love.
  • That families are not visitors.
  • In promoting strong family bonds.
  • In working with parents so they develop the confidence and skill to care for their babies in the hospital and at home.
  • In maintaining a warm and nurturing environment for families.
  • In providing the most advanced technology delivered by a skilled team of professionals.
  • In welcoming families to provide care and comfort for their babies.
  • In creating opportunities for mother/baby intimacy within the context of a high-tech environment.
