NICU Developmentally Supportive Care

WakeMed Health & Hospitals' Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is one of only four in the world to earn certification from the NIDCAP (Newborn Individual Developmental Care and Assessment Program) Federation International.  The NIDCAP Nursery Certification acknowledges nurseries that have integrated developmentally supportive and family-centered care into all aspects of care.  It recognizes WakeMed NICU as an international leader for providing developmentally supportive care for patients as young as 23 weeks gestational age, weighing as little as one pound, and their families.
