Welcome to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit


Welcome to South Miami Hospital’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Sometimes a baby is admitted to the NICU because of prematurity, sometimes because of an illness, infection or jaundice.

Whatever the reason, we want you to know that a specially trained team is here to care for your newborn baby. We know that your newborn’s need for special care and treatment is difficult for you and your family. And we strive to offer the best, most compassionate care to our patients and their parents.
 Level II private room
Your baby’s NICU team includes neonatologists, nurses, respiratory therapists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, pharmacists, physical therapists, social workers, nutritionists, specialists and you.

A neonatologist will direct your baby’s care and treatment 24 hours a day. But you are the one your baby will depend on the most, so please make sure to stay in close contact with us throughout your baby’s stay.

Our Commitment 

We understand that your baby’s hospital stay is difficult for you. We want you to know that we are here to answer any questions you
may have about your baby’s health, and we are committed to providing the highest level of care for your baby and you. You are an important part of your baby’s healthcare team, and we look forward to working with you to improve your baby’s health.
