a rainbow) - and rooms with flowers in the glass.

These rooms replace a NICU where babies had been clustered together and were literally inches from each other.

"While the technology is vital to our care, it can also be frightening to our new parents," says Dr. Walsh. "We have softened the technology and created a healing environment that brings nature indoors through the use of materials that use real flowers and other materials." The new facility expands the NICU from 8000 square feet to 30,000 square feet, almost quadrupling its size.

"I'm especially proud of the incredible use of artwork with varied materials which were commissioned from both local artists and internationally-known artists," continues Dr. Walsh. "It's worthy of a museum."

"The most exciting piece in this new setting is that it supports parents' bonding with their babies while as nurses, we can use the technology to treat babies more safely," says Ann Reitenbach, Clinical Manager of the NICU. The new NICU will feature the most high-tech equipment in Neonatology, including the first procedural bed for babies, wireless communication to connect staff and infants, and baby cameras on each of the 38 incubators.

"This new NICU will set the standard in Neonatology and push the field ahead ten to twenty years," says Dr. Walsh. Here are some highlights:

  • World's First Operating Room Table Designed Specifically for Babies, the Rainbow Flex Developed in Collaboration with NeoForce (Previously, babies were put on adult-sized operating room tables)
  • High-Intensity Procedural Room on Floor (Babies don't have to travel for procedures)
  • Enhanced Imaging at Baby's Bedside for X-Ray Viewing
  • Vocera Wireless Communication Devices to Connect Staff to Family and Infants (Replacing Loud Auditory Alarm Buzzers)
  • Baby Cams On Each Isolette (Al
