Neonatal Intensive Care Unit

Our neonatal intensive care unit provides specialist care to sick term and preterm (premature) newborn babies, based within Princess Anne Hospital.

Our state-of-the-art, purpose-built unit has been specially designed as a bright, welcoming and spacious environment for babies and their families.

We have 23 intensive and high dependency cots and 14 special care cots. Each cot has monitoring equipment and is colour-coded to give each baby their own place.

Parent and carer facilities are available on the unit funded through Southampton Hospitals Charity, as well as within the hospital site.

As one of the largest neonatal units in the country, we treat around 900 babies a year, from across the south and the Channel Islands.

You can see a virtual tour of our unit here.

As a Charity, we fund vCreate so you can get regular photo and video updates of your baby if you cannot be on the unit with them.
