Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) Level III

Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) Level III

Our 33-bed NICU, one of the largest units in Abu Dhabi, admits over 100 babies a month. Their conditions range from simple cases such as Jaundice to more complex diagnoses. Our NICU has been home to over 1600 neonates since 2015, the youngest being 23 weeks and 5 days of pregnancy only, and weighed as small as 550 grams. The unit is equipped with the latest and most advanced technology necessary for care of sick newborns. It is led by a team of over 10 internationally trained neonatology consultants and specialist, supported by a specialized team of 40 nurses, all of whom are qualified and trained as NICU nurses. There are other surgical and medical sub specialists available to provide system specific care such as in neonatal surgery, orthopedics, ophthalmology, gastroenterology and cardiology.

In addition to the doctors and nurses, the unit is also supported by a team of speech language therapists, occupational therapists and pediatric physiotherapists for screening, evaluation, diagnosis and treatment of premature babies or sick babies.

There are three levels of care within the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), which is offered to you at Danat Al Emarat Hospital in Abu Dhabi.

Level I
Providing routine postnatal care of healthy newborn infants, caring for low risk, uncomplicated newborns.

Level II
Providing intermediate services for newborns, including short-term intensive care, usually for less than 48 hours caring for moderate to selected high-risk newborns in a special care nursery.

Level III
Providing short and prolonged intensive care, including care of premature babies requiring continuous life support and comprehensive care for extremely high-risk newborn infants and those with complex and critical illnesses.

We recognize that coping with your newborn in NICU can be stressful and the neonatologist and nurses will explain the tests, treatment and other interventions, whilst supporting you to bond with your baby during this difficult period.
