Neonatal Intermediate Care Unit
CMMC's Neonatal Intermediate Care Unit Offers Specialized Care
Central Maine Medical Center's Neonatal Intermediate Care Unit (NICU) specializes in caring for premature babies and infants with developmental problems or medical complications, including infections, breathing disorders, traumatic injuries, and metabolic and neurologic disorders. Infants are also evaluated and stabilized for treatment of cardiac and surgical problems at other medical facilities.
Neonatologists and nurses on the NICU have extensive experience in the care of premature and seriously ill infants.
The NICU staff approach to patient care always involves the baby's family. Care plans are individualized, and in addition to medical and nursing care, they may include social services, financial planning, post-discharge care and home-care services.
