Department of Neonatology and Neonatal Intensive Care
The department treats newborn infants and premature babies who were born in the hospital. Occasionally, other hospitals refer infants and “preemies” for complex intervention for cases involving the eyes, pediatric nephrology, pediatric surgery or pediatric urological surgery.
There are two treatment units:
Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) for hospitalization of premature newborns and babies in critical condition in need of ongoing and intensive monitoring.
Special treatment unit where infants in various stages of recovery from complex difficulties and procedures receive observation and monitoring until they are able to go home.
The department's medical team includes the department head, senior physicians, experts in neonatology and senior physicians doing their residency in the field.
Although giving birth is most often joyful, sometimes mother's experience mixed emotions, uncertainty, worry and confusion along with happiness and optimism. Our team of doctors and nurses makes every effort to support parents' efforts to cope with these feelings. The staff is available to discuss and to answer questions about your baby and the hospitalization.
