Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)
The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) provides comprehensive care for newborns requiring emergency, supportive, and transitional care. As the only Department of Defense NICU in Europe, we serve as a referral center and have robust neonatal transport capabilities.
We are a family-centered ***Level I*** NICU with board certified neonatologists, neonatal nurse practitioners, registered nurses and administrative staff working together to take care of your premature or term newborn.
We also have partnerships with local NICUs who can provide complex, sub-specialty care. Additionally, we team with San Antonio Military Medical Center and Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for consultation and TeleHealth. For infants or families who may need long-term follow up care in the U.S. system, we can provide neonatal critical care transport back to the United States.
Our team is committed to supporting you and your family throughout the NICU stay and providing safe, high-quality care for your baby.
***We are currently operating at a Level 1 Nursery (35wga and above/2000 grams) status in support of the deliveries only here at LRMC. All infants requiring higher levels of care born at LRMC will be transferred to our host nation hospitals/NICUs.***
