New-born babies who need intensive medical attention are admitted into a special section of the hospital called the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).
Statistics show that 20 to 30 % of all pregnancies worldwide are high risk. In fact, India accounts for 18 % of the world's 14.9 million preterm births. Unexpected conditions and risk factors can affect a pregnancy's outcome and change what's required at the moment of delivery. Keeping this in mind we have designed a state-of-the-art Neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) at Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital, Navi Mumbai equipped with the most advanced technology.
The internationally trained new-born specialists and the NICU support staff are committed to provide advanced care to new-borns with critical illness.
The NICU is managed and led by experienced and expert neonatologist to manage preterm, and critically ill newborns. Along with a team of dedicated and compassionate NICU trained nursing staff and full time doctors for 24*7 care.
We have a dedicated ambulance with a pediatric registrar for children in case a medical emergency arises.
NICU babies are followed up regularly by an experienced team of neonatologists. The department is also supported by cardiologists, ophthalmologists, neurologists, orthopaedics and rehabilitation occupational and physiotherapists for specialised care.
