Neonatal Intensive Care Unit

Return to Pediatrics home

St. Michael’s NICU is a 20-24 bed advanced care critical unit. We are closely partnered with our high-risk maternal fetal-medicine team (high risk obstetrics) and general obstetrical/family medicine/midwifery group. We emphasize family–integrated care with the latest innovations in neonatal care. We work closely with our academic allies and the Acute Care Transfer Service serving patients throughout Central  Ontario. We are the fourth site of the Toronto Centre for Neonatal Health at the University of Toronto and have in-house access to multiple neonatal and pediatric specialties including outpatient follow-up capability.
