Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)

Providing treatment for new-borns at one of Dubai’s trusted Neonatal Intensive Care Units

Our Neonatal Intensive Care unit provides round-the-clock care to the most fragile of infants, those who have been born early or those who have been born with birth abnormalities or health conditions. With our team of experienced and dedicated staff, we are able to ensure that these premature and unwell new-borns receive the very best start in life.

Providing care for Dubai’s tiniest patients

Having a baby born pre-term has to be one of the most delicate and stressful events any parent can experience. Instead of those early days being a time of pure joy, they are instead tainted by the worry that comes with seeing your tiny new arrival struggling to adapt to life in the outside world. We can ensure your new baby receives care from our trustworthy Paediatric Intensive Care unit nurse, giving them all the treatment and care they need to thrive.
Pre-term babies need a very specific type of care because their needs can often be complicated and need to be handled with the utmost compassion and understanding. We employ only the most experienced and well-qualified nursing staff, those who have been trained to the highest standards and have spent years working in hospitals with NICU departments. Between them, our team has amassed decades of experience working with pre-term babies and knows how to best treat Dubai’s tiniest patients.

The special needs of NICU babies

Our NICU ward is one of the most important units within the hospital, as it cares for some of our most vulnerable patients. We aim to create as caring and supportive an environment as possible, not just for the babies we are treating, but for their wider families too. The impact of a premature birth can be incredibly difficult to deal with, not just for the moms and dads, but for siblings and grandparents too.

Seeing your new baby looking so fragile can be overwhelming, but with Dubai London Hospital, you can rest assured they are in safe hands. Our dedicated NICU team of intensive care unit specialists, including highly skilled NICU doctors and nurses, who have been fully trained in delivering high-quality care to pre-term babies and those born with health conditions.

We understand that these cases will have very specific needs all of their own, and we believe in giving treatment with a personal touch. As well as their parents, these pre-term babies will have extensive contact with our nursing staff, who take the time to get to know them as individuals and take into account the specific needs associated with them.
