NICU Family-Centered Care in Southwest Georgia

The birth of a baby is typically a joyous occasion, but when that baby is born too early or very sick, it can be a very frightening experience for a family.

The NICU nurses, neonatologists and staff at Phoebe’s NICU understand how traumatic it can be. To help make it easier, they work with family members to help them understand what is happening and how they can be involved in the care of their infant. 

Parents are encouraged to spend time in the unit; even the most fragile newborn benefits from the gentle touch and sound of their parent’s voices.

Phoebe is also one of the six state-designated perinatal centers. Our Neonatal Transport Team operates the NICU ambulance, entirely equipped to transport sick infants from throughout our perinatal region of 22 counties.
