The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit of the American Hospital boasts all of the advanced care means for examination and treatment of infants requiring critical care between 0 to 28 days of age who are either born at our Delivery Unit or other healthcare facilities.
 
Each infant receiving treatment at the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit is cared for expertly and vigilantly by an individual nurse. The American Hospital’s long-established strong healthcare system is safely and efficiently demonstrated at our state-of-the-art unit. High-quality cutting-edge ventilators and incubators, bedside imaging that does not diminish patient’s comfort (transfontanelle ultrasonography, ECHO, aEEG monitoring, and X-ray) and close monitoring of vital signs are some of the means available at our unit. An independent room for each infant with optimized temperature, humidity, light and noise and maximized hygiene and sterilization are among the distinguishing features available at our exemplary unit.
 
Our care team is experienced in the examination and treatment of critically ill babies; we plan and execute treatments meticulously utilizing up-to-date patient care knowledge. Our positive outcomes reflect lower mortality and disability rates relative to general statistics, survival, and health of babies older than 25 weeks of age, shorter mean hospital stays, lower rate of long-term problems in the eyes and lungs and healthy motor and mental development thanks to supportive treatments for premature infants which are followed up in terms of development parameters not only during hospital stays, but also during follow-up!
