High-risk deliveries and newborn care

Maimonides is a New York State-designated Regional Perinatal Center (RPC), in recognition of excellence in the delivery of maternity and neonatal care. We provide critical care for newborns in a newly renovated,  state-of-the-art Neonatology Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Our NICU is equipped to offer advanced procedures such as therapeutic hypothermia and video electroencephalogram (EEG).

In-house coverage by a board-certified neonatologist is provided 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, for all high-risk deliveries and care in the NICU. Neonatologists are also available for consultation on an emergency basis, as well as experts in a wide range of services such as pulmonology, neurology, and pediatric surgery.

We offer a full complement of pediatric sub-specialists in the NICU, as well as outstanding physicians, nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists, social workers, and patient representatives who represent the best in medical excellence and care. While our primary focus is on the care of the child, we also take into account the needs of the entire family. Parents, siblings, grandparents, and other loved ones are seen as integral elements of every baby’s health and are included in care decisions at every step. We encourage prospective parents and families to ask questions and learn about the care their child is receiving.

In the NICU, we treat:

  • Birth defects
  • Gastrointestinal disorders
  • Heart disease
  • Infections
  • Neurological problems
  • Prematurity
