Bayhealth's Neonatal Intensive Care Unit
Kent General has a Level II Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) for infants needing more intensive, specialized care. Our specially trained neonatology team, including board-certified neonatologists from throughout the state, provide expert care to premature and very sick newborns in the 15-bed NICU nursery. Specialties include:
- Total nutrition tube feeding
- Ventilator care
Kent General also offers a Ronald McDonald Room for families with infants in the NICU. The Ronald Room is sponsored by the Ronald McDonald House of Delaware and Bayhealth. This area has a kitchenette, play area and sitting area that converts to provide short-term sleep accommodations while the infant is critical or for time of transitioning to the home.
