Last Visited »

If your baby needs additional assistance, you have the support of one of the nation’s most experienced neonatal medical teams. Expert neonatal intensive care is readily available at Jackson, including mechanical ventilation, ECMO therapy, and whole-body hypothermia.

Holtz Children's Hospital

The Schatzi and Stanley Kassal Project: Newborn Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Holtz Children's Hospital is one of the largest and most well-regarded level 3 NICUs in the nation. Operated and staffed 24-hours a day in conjunction with the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, the 126-bed unit offers premature and critically ill babies world-class care. The NICU also has a large nursing station, dedicated pharmacy, computerized x-ray viewing areas and a private parent counseling room.

State-of-the-art technology includes video camera monitoring system that allows family members to view their infant in real-time, 24/7, through a secure online portal. Cameras do not transmit sound and do not record video. Secure access with a login is possible via a laptop, smartphone, or tablet anywhere there is an internet connection. Ask the NICU team for more information on this service.
