When you deliver your baby at a Novant Health hospital maternity center, you will have access to life-saving critical care for your newborn should you need it. Our specially equipped neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) nurseries offer varying levels of treatment up to level IV, the highest state of care for the most critical conditions as rated by the American Academy of Pediatrics.

NICUs provide highly specialized care from a team of pediatric intensivists trained to treat premature babies and newborns with critical medical needs. All level I facilities have neonatal nurse practitioner coverage 24/7 to stabilize and effect the transfer of babies that need a higher level of care.

Should your child experience a severe health condition or complication, our pediatric intensive care units (PICUs) will provide a soothing, child-friendly environment to receive around-the-clock intensive care.

Trained pediatric intensivists treat children through 18 years of age with medical emergencies, including severe respiratory and cardiac illnesses, all infectious diseases, a broad range of neurological conditions, hematology and oncological illnesses. Our compassionate, supportive specialists use advanced technologies and therapies to bring the best possible care to your child.

If you are parenting a teen, you know their healthcare needs are very different than when they were small children. These changes can be challenging for your child both physically and emotionally. Our pediatricians are trained to focus on the health and development of the body before adulthood and can help ease your child through each stage as they grow.
