The neonatologists offer consultation, assessment, emergency, and continuing care of premature and critically-ill infants from birth to discharge. The services are provided 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
The Mrs. Alonzo G. Decker Jr. Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at St. Joseph Medical Center is a newly designed unit tailored to benefit our smallest patients and their families. The Level IIIB NICU recently underwent a $4 million renovation and expansion, which gives each patient an individual space that can be personalized by family members. In the NICU, infants are closely cared for by a skilled team of board-certified neonatologists, neonatal nurses and nurse practitioners. Equipped with the latest technology, the NICU treats infants with a range of conditions including respiratory distress, infections and complications stemming from prematurity or multiple births.
