Our Program

The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit is a 44 bed Level 3 tertiary care center.  We provide developmentally supportive intensive care to extremely premature, sick and at risk neonates, and neonates who require surgical services.  Our service delivery area includes the Southwestern Ontario region, Sault Ste Marie and Thunder Bay as well as being a provincial resource for this patient population.

The population ranges from extremely preterm and small newborns to term newborns sick or at-risk for other reasons. The NICU cares for 800+ newborns each year.
