The Neonatology Unit is the pediatric clinical unit that guarantees care coverage for healthy and hospitalized newborns.

The Unit belongs to the Pediatric Medicine Service, and is a third-level IIIB unit that offers multidisciplinary care appropriate to the characteristics of the newborn.

Newborn care includes family care as a primary caregiver. Family integration in care and decision-making is facilitated and promoted, information is provided and supported.

Our Neonatal Unit is open to parents 24 hours a day.

The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) has 6 individual boxes and an integrated operating room. It is equipped with the latest technologies. The medium and minimum care unit has 16 beds in one space and two single rooms for pre-discharge and / or income with the mother. We have a parents' room for families where you can eat and rest.

It has a training program attached to the Autonomous University of Barcelona. Therefore, our responsibility includes, in addition to the care activity, the training of medical students, nurses and pediatric residents.
