As the region's referral center for premature and critically ill infants, NorthBay Healthcare's Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) gives nearly 180 babies each year the specialized medical care they need to grow healthy and strong.  Staffed with an expert team of nurses and doctors, our state-of-the-art Neonatal Intensive Care Unit is available to you and your baby around the clock. The annual reunion when we celebrate our NICU graduates is a highlight for everyone who works in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.

While your baby is in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit , we encourage you to be actively involved with their care. Our goal is get your baby home with you as soon as they are ready.

We know that having an infant in the NICU is stressful, and many times unexpected. Please 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.
