Advanced Care for Our Tiniest Patients
Advanced neonatal intensive care is available to residents of Palm Beach County with Wellington Regional Medical Center's 25-bed Level III neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). The hospital's Level III services represent our continued commitment to providing specialized care for newborns.
We are prepared to attend to some of the highest risk pregnancies, as well as the sickest and tiniest of babies. The beautiful 15,000 square-foot NICU provides highly advanced technology in a comfortable and aesthetically pleasing environment.
Although most parents are able to bring their newborns home when they leave the hospital, some infants require additional medical care and may need to remain in the NICU for days or even weeks. A Level III NICU cares for the widest range of newborn conditions, from the most unstable babies to those born with the lowest birth weights. In addition to respiratory and infectious conditions commonly seen in a neonatal unit, Level III Nurseries also attend to specialized surgical and cardiac conditions.
Wellington Regional continues to increase its staff of specialized NICU nurses and respiratory therapists, along with support from the departments of radiology, laboratory and pharmacy. Neonatologists, physicians trained in the care of the sickest and smallest newborns, are on staff and in-house 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
