Neonatal Intensive Care Unit

Welcome to Portneuf’s

Neonatal Intensive Care unit (NICU)

We have 16 beds available for premature and sick newborns. Our new unit is built into individual pods which allows for privacy in breast feeding as infants are able and skin to skin (kangaroo care). Our new equipment has state of the art technology.

Our Neonatologists have specialized expertise in providing care for critically ill babies and are on call 24 hours a day. Twenty five plus nurses and respiratory therapists have more than 300 years of combined experience to staff the unit.

Our Neonatal Lifeflight team is available 24 hours a day to transport babies.
