The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) of Mercy’s Family Childbirth and Children’s Center is led by Dr. Susan Dulkerian. Our hospital’s NICU is a Level III-B intensive care nursery that delivers comprehensive care for babies who are born prematurely, babies born with congenital anomalies and any baby who requires special monitoring and care in the newborn period.
Featured on national television on the Discovery Health Network documentary-style program, “NICU,” our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit includes a team of dedicated specialists who deliver care in a private, homelike environment. Mercy was one of the first hospitals in the Baltimore area to offer private NICU rooms, which allow parents to stay by their baby’s bedside and continue the bonding process.
Our NICU is staffed with a team of professionals to care for your little one:
The all-private NICU rooms in our hospital allow for individualized developmental care and create a more natural environment, closer to what the baby will experience at home.
Often parents of NICU babies are not prepared for a premature or sick infant and don’t want to leave their baby. At Mercy they don’t have to. One member of the family can stay overnight in the baby’s room, which is outfitted with a sleep sofa. Our Mother-Baby Unit is located nearby the NICU so new moms can easily visit their baby and spend the night in the baby’s room if they wish.
As a Level III-B NICU, we care for babies of any birth weight and gestational age who experience the following conditions:
The NICU at Mercy is equipped with the latest technologies to diagnose, monitor and treat newborn diseases and conditions. Our NICU provides most types of neonatal intensive care, with the exception of major surgery.
