Memorial Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) cares for sick infants and newborns in Gulfport and surrounding communities. The only civilian unit on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, Memorial NICU is staffed by board certified neonatologists. We help give premature babies and babies with birth defects the special care they need. Located on the second floor of Memorial Hospital, the NICU is divided into three areas—intensive care, intermediate and isolation.

Moms and dads can be with their baby during this time and learn how to take care of the new one before they take the baby home. Parenting rooms are offered so parents can spend the night before their baby is discharged. This allows them to learn more about baby care prior to going home.

Additional services include:

Neonatal Intensive Care

The NICU area has warming beds and incubators to comfort premature or sick newborns. Moms and dads are encouraged to sit next to their new baby to provide the infant love and care. Cribs or isolettes are where babies can rest peacefully in the intermediate nursery.
