Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)
LRMC's Neonatal Intensive Care Unit is a 7-bed, family-centered, Level I*** NICU. As the only Department of Defense NICU in Europe, we serve as a referral center and have robust neonatal transport capability.
We care for premature and term infants requiring emergency, supportive, and transitional care. We also have partnerships with local NICUs who can provide complex, subspecialty care. Additionally, we team with San Antonio Military Medical Center and Walter Reed Army 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.
***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.***
