NorthBay Healthcare’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is the region’s only Level III referral center for premature and critically ill infants. Our state-of-art NICU is staffed with an expert team of doctors and nurses around the clock and gives nearly 180 babies each year the specialized medical care they need to grow healthy and strong. At NorthBay, we encourage our parents to be actively involved with their baby’s care. Our goal is to get your baby home with you as soon as they are ready. And we like to stay connected long after they go home: We host an annual reunion to celebrate with our NICU graduates — a highlight for everyone who works in the unit. We understand that having an infant in the NICU is often an unexpected and stressful time. Our parents are encouraged to take advantage of the resources we offer to help you through this difficult time. Ask any of our nurses to connect you with our social worker, lactation consultant, or chaplain services and join our weekly support group designed for parents like you

Keep a Close Eye on Your Baby

We know how important it is to feel connected to your infant while they're in the NICU, and offer a free service for parents to view their baby 24/7 with NicView™. This innovative camera system streams real time images of your baby directly to your smartphone, laptop, tablet or computer. The streaming is done securely with encryption, similar to online banking. No one else can see your baby's images unless you share the log-in credentials, and the cameras don't transmit sound or record video.

You can learn more about this service from the NicView™ FAQ.

Funds to support this service were generously donated by: NorthBay Guild, Cordelia Rotary, and Solano Community Foundation grant.
