The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at the North Bay Regional Health Centre provides an Intensive Care Nursery setting for newborns as early as 30 weeks gestation.
Five Pediatricians and skilled nurses with specialty Neonatal Intensive Care Nursing education provide intensive nursing for the critically ill baby and supportive care for pre-term infants as they develop.
The health care team is supported by Respiratory Therapists, a lactation consultant, a Dietician, Social Workers, Pharmacists and Paediatric Rehabilitation Therapists. The family is an important component of the health care team.
The NICU is also a high-risk referral centre for areas surrounding North Bay. Close linkages with Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (Ottawa), Sick Children’s Hospital (Toronto) and our own community service agencies compliment the full spectrum of neonatal care.
