Nurse with baby in NICU

for newborns who need intensive care

For the premature newborn or for an infant with a serious medical condition, the experts in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) of Geisinger’s Janet Weis Children’s Hospital in Danville, and Wilkes-Barre, stand ready.

Your baby might need special attention because of low birth weight. Or your newborn or infant could have a complex medical or surgical condition that requires immediate treatment by highly skilled physicians, nurses, surgeons and other pediatric sub-specialists. 

Your baby’s team will be led by a neonatologist, a physician who specializes in caring for newborns and infants with complex medical conditions. Our extraordinary team of specialists, a dedicated unit, and on-going investments in equipment—all devoted to tiny newborns—ensure that your baby receives the best care available in the region. more more
