Level III NICU in Winston-Salem
Forsyth Medical Center's level III neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) — one of the highest levels of newborn care available — provides expert, around-the-clock intensive care for premature and seriously ill babies born or transferred here from outlying counties. Our specialized team works to help you bring your little one home as soon as possible.
While you’re still in the hospital, you can spend alone time with your baby in a private room. When you cannot be at the NICU, you can call our care team any time for updates. You can even see your baby when you’re away using our Angel Eye service, a nonstop, password-protected video feed.
Ronald McDonald Family Room
If you need a moment to rest while visiting the NICU, you can spend time in the Ronald McDonald Family Room located on the same floor. This room provides some of the comforts of home while keeping you close to your newborn.
