If you are a pediatrician or OB/GYN, Newborn Intensive Care Specialist (NICS) is your partner.Why refer your patients to us? Because not only do we offer expert care to your patients, but we make your life easier, too.

As neonatologists, we attend high-risk deliveries alongside OB/GYNs and care for critically ill or premature babies for up to two months in the Level II and Level III NICUs that NICS provides to hospitals. Our physicians are available on-site 24/7 and are trained to handle the most complex and high-risk situations that can arise with neonates, backed up by the latest medical equipment. We also care for well or term babies and conduct well baby exams and newborn hearing screenings.

As pediatric hospitalists, when you, the primary pediatrician, are on vacation or unavailable, we are here 24/7 to step in and handle your case – and hand it back once you return or your patient is released from the hospital. We will coordinate care with nurses and sub-specialists, and will keep you informed through whichever method you prefer so you are prepared for follow-up care.

Refer your patients to NICS, and experience how small miracles create big results.
