​Neonatal Intensive Care Unit

Bringing a new life into the world is a miraculous journey. However, more than 1,800 babies every year need a little more medical attention after birth and are admitted to the Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).

The NICU at Magee is equipped with a total of 77 beds, consisting of 48 private bays, three open-bed pods, and one eight-bed Level III nursery on the 2700 unit.

This makes it the largest NICU in the country with private bays that utilize solid walls instead of glass or curtains. The privacy of these walls enhances Magee’s family centered care philosophy and allows for increased family interaction with baby, nurses and support staff.
