Expert Neonatal Intensive Care

The Billy Miller Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Frederick Health Hospital

Frederick Health Hospital cares for more than 2,400 families in our Birth Place each year. While most newborns do not require intensive medical care, having a Level III NICU in our community provides laboring persons with welcome peace of mind.

During your baby's NICU stay, our team of clinical experts guides you in caring for your baby based on their individual needs. To ensure a safe transition home, our Case Management team works with you to provide support and access to resources, including follow-up visits.
