Neonatal Care

Norwood Hospital Maternity Services

The level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), affiliated with Boston Children's Hospital, at St. Elizabeth's Medical Center is one of only a handful of units in Boston that provides the most advanced care and technology for premature and critically ill newborns.


St. Elizabeth's is affiliated with Boston Children's Physicians to provide our most vulnerable patients access to some of the best medical treatment in the world. Neonatologists from St. Elizabeth's and Boston Children's Hospital provide onsite neonatal services at the St. Elizabeth's NICU 24 hours a day, seven days a week. In the event that St. Elizabeth's patients require the most critical care, they have access to the specialty services offered at Boston Children's Hospital.

The Neonatal Team

The NICU is staffed by board-certified neonatologists who are also members of the Children's Hospital Boston medical staff and licensed neonatal nurse practitioners. Other members of the care team include:

  • Development therapists
  • Experienced nursing staff
  • Nurse educator
  • Nutritionists

Subspecialty services

In the event that a St. Elizabeth's patient requires the most critical care, they have access to the specialty services offered at Boston Children's Hospital. Our physicians, nurses and other staff members work closely with the parents so they can participate in their baby's care in the unit and feel confident about caring for their newborn at home.

Neonatal Transport

An important part of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at St. Elizabeth's Medical Center is neonatal transport to and from the medical center. A team of neonatologists, neonatal nurse practitioners and neonatal nurses travel to referring hospitals to transport sick newborns to the NICU at St. Elizabeth's. Through a collaboration with Armstrong Ambulance, a dedicated ambulance with state-of-the-art equipment is used to transport newborns.
