We welcome you to the ICN (Intensive Care Nursery) at the Children's Hospital at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center
If you're a physician or hospital needing to transport a patient to Children's Hospital at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center, please call 800-650-3222.
Our ICN (Intensive Care Nursery), also known as a NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit), aims to provide your baby with high-quality care and help you as a family. Having a baby hospitalized in critical care is difficult, but our ICN team and staff can help. We will provide the best possible care for your baby.
We want you to spend as much time as you can caring for your baby, being with your baby, and helping make decisions about your baby's care.
Here are some things to know, especially at the beginning of your baby's ICN stay:
- ICN location and contacting us
- Taking care of your baby
- Being with your baby at the ICN
- Family spaces at the ICN
- Where to stay
- Family and sibling support resources
We will give you a lot of information, some of which may be hard to understand. Please talk with us about your questions and concerns.
