Help Even Before Your Baby Is Born

As Delaware’s only Level IV NICU, we provide care for the most critically ill infants, with onsite cardiothoracic surgery and the state’s only neonatal extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) center.

We provide services to ventilator-dependent infants, including a comprehensive teaching program for parents about tracheostomy (a plastic tube inserted directly into the trachea) and ventilators (machines that help babies breathe).
