If your baby is born before it is considered full term, the birth is called "premature". Some of these babies are admitted to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). The NICU unit is crucial as it takes care of babies who require specialised intensive care after birth.

The NICUs at Mediclinic City Hospital, Mediclinic Welcare Hospital and Mediclinic Parkview Hospital are some of the largest level three facilities in the UAE and accept babies from 23 weeks gestation, providing the most advanced level of care from a caring, specialist staff. We manage conditions such as:

  • Premature babies
  • Neonatal jaundice
  • Neonatal infections
  • Respiratory distress
  • Infants of diabetic mothers
  • Anaemia
