Neonatal Care: Services
Perinatal Care: If your doctor determines that your pregnancy is of high-risk, you can be rest assured that your baby will receive the highest level of care at Suguna Hospital. Our neonatal-perinatal medical staff remains in the Hospital overnight and are available to the obstetrical team in times of emergency.
Family-Centered Approach: Parents are welcome to visit anytime as we consider you to be the primary care-givers. The needs of a family whose tiniest member has been admitted to our NICU are unique. It is our mission to assist you, the family, along each step of this journey and to prepare you for your return home.
