Neonatal Intensive Care Unit

Doctor with baby in NICU

Lakeridge Health's Oshawa site is home to our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) where we care for our littlest patients. Our state-of-the-art 20-bed unit, run by a skilled team of doctors and nurses, provides a range of therapies and specialized treatment for newborn babies.

Our level of expertise allows us to accept babies transferred from intensive care at Sick Kids, Mount Sinai and Sunnybrook, in order for Durham parents to have their baby closer to home.  We are also a regional hub for babies in need of intensive care from Peterborough to Cobourg and beyond.

At Lakeridge Health, we believe that parents are our partners and welcome them to the NICU any time, day or night. Rooms are available for overnight stays so parents can stay close to their baby.

From Hospital Court, enter through the main lobby and continue past the food court to the A-wing hallway, located
just past the lobby escalators. Turn right and follow the hallway to the G-Wing elevator. When you reach the 3rd floor, turn left off the elevator and another left down the hallway. Make a right at the first hall you come to and you’ll find the NICU at the end of the hall on your left.
