In partnership with the Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine, we are a New York State Department of Health-designated Regional Perinatal Center.

The Center is responsible for establishing the highest level of neonatal and obstetrical care and education in Suffolk County, Long Island, and beyond. Every year Stony Brook Medicine takes approximately 1,000 admissions to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), 100 neonatal transports, 200 maternal transports, 90 newborns weighing less than 1,500 grams, and 4,000 inborn deliveries.

Stony Brook Children’s NICU:

  • A 46-bed NICU with all-private rooms. This means that babies have their own rooms, which, in turn, allows the nursing staff to better control the environment—critical factors such as lighting, noise, and temperature. This setting is optimal for the developmental care of babies. It also is optimal for family-centered care because privacy encourages and empowers parents to bond with their babies and be involved in the care plan.
  • The ability to keep NICU twins in the same room
  • A new Labor & Delivery Suite, including 10 labor suites with private baths and recovery rooms.
  • Expanded maternity urgent care capacity that can deal with any kind of obstetric emergency 24/7. This includes three state-of-the-art operating rooms adjacent to the labor suites and a dedicated anesthesiologist, who is also available 24/7.
