While most babies are born exactly when they should be and in the best of health, it’s still reassuring to know that we offer services for those rare times when babies need a little extra help. Central Maine Healthcare has a high-quality neonatal intermediate care unit (NICU) available for those babies and their families. We have the best doctors and nurses on our team who use the latest in technology, skills, and compassion to care for your little one.
Local Care So You Can Get Help … Quickly!
Our NICU is located at Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston, which is a quick drive from Bridgton or Rumford. If you give birth in either of those two hospitals, our NICU transport team will quickly and carefully transport your baby to our caring team in Lewiston in under 30 minutes.
Specialized Care for Your Baby
We specialize in caring for premature babies and infants born with medical conditions. Our NICU physicians and nurses have special training and are skilled at evaluating and diagnosing infant conditions. As a result, you have the peace of mind, knowing that should any complications arise, we have specialized care waiting just for you and your baby. Our NICU team works closely with infants’ families, to create care plans as needed. We’ll help plan what services might be needed, including post-discharge care and home-care services.
Free Accommodations for Extra Support
If your baby requires extended care and traveling to CMMC is an issue, we have a hospitality house, Arbor House, to accommodate you and your family. The 15-bedroom building has a common room, a fully equipped kitchen, dining room, library, laundry facilities, a patio and a garden. Arbor House is free for its visitors and is supported through community donations. For more information: Call CMMC’s Arbor House Scheduler: 795-2691.
