The unit's team includes board-certified neonatologists and pediatricians who provide 24-hour-a-day, in-hospital coverage for neonates who need special care. Consultations are available from specialists in the fields of cardiology, ophthalmology and orthopedics.
The hospital offers perinatal care, delivers 1,400 babies each year and has maternal-child health as an area of clinical emphasis.
