NICU Stage 1 Refurbishment Complete

8th September 2016

The $7 million first stage of the John Hunter Children's Hospitals Neonatal Intensive Care Unit has been completed.

Stage 1 includes 32 special care spaces, a palliative care room, showering facilities, a breast feeding and expressing room, a waiting area, three counselling rooms and a family room that includes two overnight accomodation rooms.

Each space a baby is cared for offers much more space and privacy than in the old unit, including a recliner chair that will allow a parent to stay overnight if they wish.

Stage two of the redevelopment has now started, which includes staff training areas and office spaces. Stage three will see the redevelopment of the intensive care area, isolation rooms and a procedure room.
