Family-centered neonatal care

Our NICU is designed to allow for focused bonding with your baby while we offer the intensive attention critical to your baby's earliest moments and most serious needs.

Some of the features of our unit include:

  • Private NICU suites: We encourage both baby and mom (when mom is medically cleared and discharged) to room together in one of our 10 private NICU suites. This allows mom and other family members the chance to bond with the new baby.
  • Designed for bonding: We include special recliners to promote bonding and “kangaroo” care, or skin-to-skin, contact, with your baby.
  • Free Wi-Fi: We understand your priority is your newborn. You should be able to connect to the online resources you need during this time as easily as possible. This is why we provide a convenient Wi-Fi network, free of charge.
  • Secured unit: We provide 24/7 security for the NICU to ensure the safety of your newborn.
  • Secure remote viewing access: If you or your family members need to leave the NICU, you will be able to view your newborn safely with our secured advanced monitoring access.
  • Breastfeeding support: We encourage breastfeeding for all newborns. As part of our labor and delivery services, our lactation specialists are available on-site to offer support and guidance. You can contact our lactation specialists at (352) 606-7304. Other aspects of our breastfeeding support services include:
    • Offering human donor milk, recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics
    • Providing breastfeeding classes and support groups
    • Following breastfeeding protocols from the Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative, created by the World Health Organization and the United Nations Children’s’ Fund
