Our NICU offers life-saving treatments for newborns by providing round-the-clock care to sick and premature babies. At Prashanth, we have one of the most advanced neonatal units ushering in a new era in neonatal medicine. The Unit combines advanced technology and trained healthcare professionals to provide specialized care 24/7, directly supervised by a Neonatology Consultant.

The NICU has advanced technology and trained healthcare professionals to give special care for the tiniest patients.  Babies who need intensive care do better if they are born in a hospital with a NICU than if they are moved after birth. The advent of newer therapeutic modalities, artificial life-support techniques, and infection control mechanisms has tremendously decreased mortality in newborns. Our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is staffed and equipped to provide life-saving treatment for premature, low birth weight newborns and critically ill infants. Our neonatology team is readily available with well-equipped transport facilities to manage sick neonates, premature and low birth weight babies.

Neonatology is the specialized care of the sick newborn including premature and tiny babies. If your baby needs to be evaluated by a neonatologist, you can be assured that your child will receive the best possible medical care at Prashanth Hospitals, the best NICU hospital in Chennai.
