Neonatal Intensive Care Unit

The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Mayanei HaYeshua treats over 350 premature infants every year, including babies weighing less than 500 grams. 


The unit uses the most advanced and sophisticated equipment to treat the problems typical to premature babies resulting from the immaturity of their body systems.  It provides the optimal conditions for their healthy development after birth, employing modern methods of respiratory ventilation, intravenous feeding and constant monitoring of vital signs.


The unit team includes neonatologists, a professional nursing team, a social worker, physiotherapist, and others.

Who is admitted to the NICU?

A premature baby ("preemie") is a baby born before 37 weeks of gestation. 
Premature babies need intensive care and close supervision.  The controlled care that they receive at the Mayanei HaYeshua NICU provides the optimal conditions necessary for their normal and full development outside the womb.


Immediately after birth, the preemie is brought to the NICU, where he is examined by the neonatologist. 


He is then attached to a monitor that tracks his vital signs, such as pulse, respiration and blood oxygenation levels.  His blood pressure, body temperature, and blood sugar concentration are measured, and routine tests such as blood count, blood group, blood culture, white blood cells, and a chest x-ray are performed. 


After examining him the neonatologist will decide treatment, which will include giving IV fluids, antibiotics and other medications, respiratory ventilation, oxygenation, etc.   Further treatment is determined according to each baby's particular needs.


Specialists in Neonatal Pediatrics

The team in the department includes senior neonatologists, nurses and auxiliary staff, a social worker and physiotherapist, all specializing in preterm infants, and supported by consultants in various fields.  The staff, which includes also secretaries and volunteers, is totally dedicated to their work, and give their utmost to every newborn whatever his medical condition.  As in all departments of Mayanei HaYeshua, here too the philosophy guiding this important department is the supreme value above all of the sanctity of life.


Visiting hours:

The baby's parents are entitled to visit the unit at all times of the day.  There will be occasions when they will be asked to wait outside the room, for example during doctors' visits, changes of the nursing shift, during treatment procedures, admission or bathing of a baby, etc.

It is important to remember that premature babies are very susceptible to infection owing to the immaturity of their immune system.   For this reason we limit the number of visitors, so as to protect the babies from illness and infection.
