The New Neonatal Intensive Care Unit

The Need

Sheba’s NICU, a major referral center in Israel, caters to complex cases such as congenital heart disease, brain malformations, and metabolic disorders. Utilizing advanced technologies and expertise, the medical team strives to deliver top-notch care to every patient, playing a vital role in their early development, providing essential care for these vulnerable newborns.

Today, the current facilities, designed nearly 30 years ago, are now struggling to meet the growing demands and standards of neonatal intensive care. With an increase in births, high-risk pregnancies, and multiple births at Sheba Medical Center, the existing infrastructure is stretched to its limits. This situation underscores the immediate necessity for an upgraded NICU to continue providing the best possible care for these infants and their families.

The Project

The upcoming neonatal unit at Sheba Medical Center represents a significant advancement in infant care, thoughtfully designed to cater to the needs of critically ill newborns. This state-of-the-art facility is divided into three specialized sections. The first is an intensive care division, specifically for critically ill newborns, equipped with advanced medical technology. The second section provides care for infants needing specialized medical attention. The third section focuses on tracking the growth and development of preterm infants post their NICU stay.

This approach embodies a commitment to family-integrated care, aiming to promote the overall well-being of patients and their families by providing an ideal combination of a nurturing environment, medical expertise, and top-tier facilities.
