The eight-bed NICU will allow the hospital to care for premature babies born as early as 32 weeks. The architect for the project was Fox Architects.

The new NICU features eight newborn intensive care beds throughout a special care nursery, procedure room, and baby nursery.

The space was completed with high-end finishes, with features such as brightly colored accent walls, glass-fronted maple supply cabinets, and frosted-glass and maple room dividers between the suites.
McGrath implemented strict isolation and infection prevention measures during construction to ensure a clean and safe environment for patients and staff.
