GREATER BALTIMORE MEDICAL CENTER: Helping the Tiniest of Our Patients
Greater Baltimore Medical Center issued the following announcement on June 24.
A Healthy Dialogue, Dr. Chessare shares his thoughts about the opening of our new NICU and the recent Father’s Day 5K and 1 Mile Fun Walk.
For years, GBMC has been called “the baby hospital.” We are known as a premier birthing center, but we are also an outstanding center for the care of premature and sick babies. Our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) treats roughly one in ten of the 4,000 babies born at GBMC annually.
On Tuesday, June 26, GBMC will officially open the doors to a new NICU that will allow us to continue to achieve excellent clinical outcomes in a state-of-the-art setting.
The new NICU will provide individual private spaces for babies and their families. Each of our new 13 rooms (10 single and 3 multiple-birth rooms) will allow for an individualized environment in terms of lighting, temperature, and sound.
