Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)

The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Lawrence + Memorial Hospital takes great pride in the special relationships that we form with the infants and families we serve in southeastern Connecticut. The NICU allows area women and their families to have high-risk pregnancies delivered locally and for critically ill, or at-risk newborns, to receive the necessary specialized care close to home.

Our team of highly qualified professionals, including neonatal staff nurses, advanced practitioners, physician assistants and board-certified neonatologists will provide your infant with best-practice neonatal intensive care.

While the majority of newborn infants are born healthy, specialized care and monitoring are sometimes necessary. Should your infant require more care, our 14-bed Level III NICU features highly advanced equipment specially designed to care for critically-ill newborns in an environment that fosters family involvement and healthy development.

Because family-centered care guides our practice, we are in a unique position to offer you individualized education by providing you the time and skills necessary for you to assume your role as parent. In our warm, personal and friendly atmosphere these very small and fragile infants have a wonderful chance to thrive and grow.
