Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)
About the NICU
Critically ill and high-risk newborns are cared for in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at CHEO. In addition to providing hospital care to newborns in a 20-bed unit, CHEO also provides the transfer of critically ill infants. The Neonatal Transport Team is available 24 hours/day, 7 days/week to provide stabilization for safe and seamless transfer of critically ill infants to an appropriate unit.
Neonatal Follow-Up Clinic
This clinic is a growth and developmental screening clinic for infants and children who had complications in the neonatal period. Patients seen in the clinic have been admitted to one of the Neonatal Intensive Care Units in the City of Ottawa or have been referred from another center. Children are seen at 4, 10 and 18 months corrected gestational age and at 4 years of age. More frequent assessments are provided, as required.
