Most births happen without any complications. But our 15-bed Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is down the hall from The Birth Place, just in case. We are the only Level III NICU in greater Nashua. We care for babies with many different medical issues, such as infections and birth defects, and most commonly, prematurity. Some of our babies are as small as 2 ¼ pounds or as young as 28 weeks. Most are born here but others transfer here for specialized care, close to family, until they’re ready to go home.
