Welcome to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)

There are times when babies are born premature or need specialized treatment and care after birth. The NICU at St. Joseph Mercy Hospital Ann Arbor provides the critical care necessary for these newborns. Our staff is committed to providing the best possible care for your baby.

Philosophy of Family Centered Care

Consistent with the philosophy of care of Saint Joseph Mercy Health System and Trinity Health, the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit strives to provide family-centered health care. This approach to health care views the family as an integral part of the healing process and encourages involvement of parents and family members as equal partners. Information sharing and collaboration between parents and staff are cornerstones of our interactions. The health care team recognizes the vital role that families play in ensuring the health and well being of each infant.

Family Advisory Board

The Family Advisory Board provides an extra level of support to parents and families of critically ill babies being cared for in the NICU. It is made up of patients whose babies graduated from the NICU and use their experience to help create and offer educational and support programs. Learn more about the Family Advisory Board.
