Henrico Doctors’ Hospital opens Neonatal Intensive Care Unit

HCA Virginia’s Henrico Doctors’ Hospital this week announced the opening of its new Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.

The unit is the final piece of the expansion phase of The Women’s Hospital, a health facility that opened in December. Henrico Doctors’ Hospital now features the largest community-based Level III NICU in Central Virginia and the only NICU with 24/7 neonatologists on-site.

The family-centered unit, designated a Level III NICU by the state of Virginia, provides a high level of medical care for premature and critically ill infants.

“We are excited to offer an enhanced level of care to our patients,” said Will Wagnon, chief executive officer at Henrico Doctors’ Hospitals. “The newly renovated unit sets a new standard of care in the Richmond community and enables our team to provide our tiniest of patients with access to high-quality, comprehensive care, on an even greater scale.”



Located on the third floor of The Women’s Hospital, the new unit includes 21,000 square feet of renovations and new construction, 40 NICU and progressive care nursery treatment areas, 33 private rooms, four sets of connected rooms for twins, a transitional nursery, a family support lounge and on-unit training and educational rooms for parents. The unit also features new technology, including a new patient monitoring system and an advanced communications system for patients, providers and staff.

“Henrico Doctors’ Hospital has a great reputation for women’s and children’s care”, said Vicki Rose, medical director of the NICU at Henrico Doctors’ Hospital. “Parents can rest assured knowing that if their infant needs special care, we are able to provide expert medical attention, while keeping mother and baby together in the same space.”

Henrico Doctors’ Hospital expects to deliver more than 4,000 babies this year. For details, visit http://rvabirth.com.
