Department of Perinatology (GCU, NICU)

The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is a ward for babies who were born early, or have a condition at birth. In addition to the intensive care, we strive to reduce the stress for patients and parents. In recent years, we have been putting our best effort to support babies who need medical care after they go home, by strengthening the connection between various care providers (including home-care nurses, public health nurses) and family members.
Contents of Treatment
We are ready to accept patients 24 hours and 365 days. In order to start treatment immediately after birth, we meet the family before birth and notify other departments beforehand when needed.
Amongst others the following intensive care treatments are offered: Treatment for stability of the respiratory and circulatory state, brain protection, infection control and nutritional management. When patients require surgical treatment for intestinal, heart or brain complications, treatment is coordinated with specialists in these fields.
