New Hampshire's Hospital for Children

Newborn Intensive Care Unit

    One Elliot Way – Manchester, NH 03109

 

Because even babies need heroes…

As the area's only Level III Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU), the New Hampshire's Hospital for Children NICU has the high-tech resources and a team of neonatologists, nurses, respiratory care therapists and other therapists specializing in care of the sick newborn including the tiniest of patients. Most babies are healthy but when the unexpected happens we are here for you and your baby.

Built for the most fragile infants…

More than heroic intervention at the earliest stages of life, the NICU at the Elliot offers a unique blend of technology and compassion that encourages healing and growth for babies and their parents. Private and semi-private rooms provide a quiet environment for our tiniest patients and their families. Each room is equipped with individual temperature controls, room darkening shades, decibel meters and soundproofing. This helps to provide NICU babies a developmentally appropriate environment that more closely resembles conditions in the womb to help support their treatment.

For your baby…

At New Hampshire's Hospital for Children, we want your new baby to get the care they need close to home. We offer the primary care and specialty services they will need as they grow up big and tall!.
