Welcome to Munson’s NICU
Located in the heart of the Family Birth Center at Munson Medical Center, the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) provides skilled medical care for babies. Our unit is a Level IIIB regional referral center and the only NICU north of Grand Rapids. We embrace a family-centered philosophy in a developmentally sensitive environment. Most babies we care for are born in Munson’s Maternity Unit. Babies born prematurely or with special needs from other hospitals in northern Michigan also are referred to us. Our specially-trained physicians and nurses provide expert acute care services.
We want parents to feel as comfortable as possible in our unit and they are encouraged to visit frequently.
A baby’s stay in the NICU is probably unplanned and can be a very emotional experience. We want parents to feel as comfortable as possible in our unit and they are encouraged to visit frequently. A parent’s nurturing care plays a vital role in the growth and development of a baby. We encourage questions and would like to know if there is anything we can do to make you more at ease during your baby’s stay in the NICU.
