Everyone plans for the day that their child will be born, but not everyone plans on the possibility that they may need to use the services of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). While the vast majority of infants are born healthy and without complications, sometimes special care is needed.
Our newly-renovated Neonatal Intensive Care at TriStar Centennial Women’s & Children’s is a specialty unit for newborns who need additional care in their first days, weeks or months of life, due to prematurity or birth defects.
This Level III, 60-bed unit has neonatologists and neonatal nurse practitioners in-house 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. An experienced interdisciplinary team works to develop the best treatment plan for each infant.
TriStar Centennial Women’s & Children’s NICU provides transport services that allow access to this specialty care for parents throughout Middle Tennessee through our TriStar network of hospitals. Our experience and expertise results in these babies quickly reaching a level of maturity and health that allows them to go home and continue receiving care in their communities.
