About the Unit:
At the University of Maryland Children’s Hospital, that is a sentiment we fully believe in, so we have a very BIG space for the tiniest people of all.
The Drs. Rouben and Violet Jiji Neonatal Intensive Care Unit is a 37,000 square feet of space made up of 52 single rooms, including twin suites. With sleeping couches in every room, families are able to be with their babies round-the-clock, allowing for more bonding and kangaroo holding.
Every detail was carefully considered during the design and construction of this space so that we can provide a true family-centered experience with an emphasis on great patient outcomes.
As a Level IV NICU, we provide the highest intensity of care for the smallest and most critically-ill babies. Our teams of doctors, nurses and support staff provide 24/7 care for a wide range of problems from premature birth and congenital heart defects to breathing issues and kidney problems.
We care for twice the number of babies as most community-hospitals NICUs which means we have the experience needed to help babies survive and thrive. We have a specialized transport team that helps bring babies via air or ground ambulance to the Children’s Hospital for the complex care they need.
