Newborn in NICU

UM Capital Region Medical Center operates the only Level III neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) in Prince George's County.

We are equipped for high-risk deliveries and caring for babies with special needs and are able to accept infants from other hospitals that require intensive care.

Our neonatal specialists are trained to provide critical care in high-risk deliveries, prenatal care, and more, allowing moms and babies to be treated and monitored at the same hospital after delivery.  

Parents are able to visit their baby 24-hours a day. We encourage parents to get to know their care team and ask questions.
