Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)
In the event your baby is born prematurely or develops complications after birth, Overlake has a Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) standing by.
Overlake partners with affiliated specialist providers to make sure your new baby receives the very best care available on the Eastside. Our NICU is staffed around the clock by specially trained, expert neonatal physicians.
- Available every day, around the clock. Neonatology physicians are onsite, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, should your newborn require additional, expert care.
- Hospital care. Neonatalogists take care of your infant if they need to stay in the NICU due to prematurity, low birth weight, illness or other special needs.
- Referrals to pediatric experts. Our team can coordinate your baby's care if they need to be seen by specialists.
While sophisticated technology is put to work in the care of these special infants, our family-centered approach encourages collaboration between parents and staff throughout baby’s hospital stay. Family support is an integral part of baby’s recovery. A daybed and recliner are available at baby’s bedside to keep you close.
