Middletown, NY- Orange Regional Medical Center’s Rowley Family Birthing Center has opened a new Level 2 Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) designed to provide specialized care for infants who are born prematurely and for babies requiring specialized care.
Located in the Rowley Family Birthing Center on the sixth floor, the 10-bed Level 2 NICU will complement current perinatal services. Designed to meet the physical and emotional needs of premature and sick babies and their families, the NICU is a comfortable, family-centered environment that provides advanced clinical care. The NICU is staffed with specially trained neonatal nurses and nurse practitioners who support a team of full-time neonatologists affiliated with Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital at Westchester Medical Center.
“We’ll now provide advanced healthcare to babies born at Orange Regional requiring specialized attention,” says Nursing Service Administrator, Women and Children, Theresa Fay Conte, MSN RN-C, NE-BC. “They will have access to expert physicians, specialists and nursing staff without being transferred to another facility away from their family.”
Adam and Beata Romanowski recently delivered twin boys at 32 weeks and they were admitted to the NICU for specialized care. “The staff in the NICU is unbelievable. They’re angels and put their hearts into everything they do,” says Mr. Romanowski.
The Level 2 NICU is a technologically advanced clinical environment that provides a full array of specialized equipment and delivery room coverage along with all required and necessary support services around the clock.
