The David and Laura Stone Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is a state-designated regional perinatal center, providing comprehensive care to healthy and critically ill newborns throughout the state. We believe that parents are active partners in the care of their babies and in the understanding and development of the science of newborn care. The compassionate treatment we provide is a model of effective integration of evidence-based, interdisciplinary and family-centered approaches. As a result of this approach, MUSC Children's Hospital is recognized as the premier provider of care for high-risk newborns.
Each year approximately 2,700 newborns are delivered at the Medical University of South Carolina, and an additional 12,000 babies are born within our referral area. These deliveries generate approximately 1,000 admissions to our intensive care nurseries. Neonatal transports account for 40 percent of the total admissions to our NICU.
