An expanded neonatal intensive care unit has arrived in Roseville. Kaiser Permanente said the expanded unit will increase access to specialized care and provide a comforting environment for the entire family.
A virtual ribbon cutting ceremony was held recently. Families took a virtual tour of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit in the Women and Children’s Center via Twitter live video.
The specialized unit is responsible for caring for at-risk newborns from Roseville and across the region. The new and larger space will fulfill the needs of women, children and families with private rooms, isolation rooms and space for families with multiple newborns.
Kaiser Permanente adds 6,000 square feet of hospital space, increasing the NICU capacity to 60 patient beds. When it first opened over a decade ago, it had just 48 rooms.
Placer County is continually expanding access to vital resources with cutting-edge technologies. Along with Kaiser Permanente, the region is home to multiple large hospitals, including Sutter Roseville Medical Center that provide excellent health care and promote community wellness.
