NewYork-Presbyterian/Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital is home to one of the nation's most renowned neonatal intensive care units (NICU), staffed with specialists who provide critical care to newborns to help them get better. Some infants, however, are affected by life-limiting conditions or terminal illnesses.
Through our Neonatal Comfort Care Program, we provide all of the care these babies need to have their basic needs satisfied during their short lives, in an environment that is compassionate, warm, and loving. We believe that no matter how brief, each baby's life is precious and needs to be welcomed and cherished. We understand how very difficult this time is for families, and we are there to provide support during this journey.
The Neonatal Comfort Care Program is available to you when there are no medical and surgical treatments available to help your baby recover. Our multidisciplinary team will support you and your family while alleviating your child's suffering and improving the quality of his or her life.
