The continued development of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit of the Women's Hospital is a remarkable story of creativity and dedication. The Women's Hospital started as an 80-bed maternal facility in 1959.
The NICU started in 1975 as the Special Care Baby Unit (SCBU) in a small space of 50 square meters at the former Women's Hospital. The available space accommodated 12 cribs. The staff consisted of 13 Nurses led by a Head nurse, one Specialist Neonatologist and one Resident.
Following its transfer to the new building in 1988, the NICU has grown into a 970 sq.meter Unit with state of the art diagnostic, therapeutic and post discharge-follow up facilities. Expansion had made the NICU into probably the largest and one of the most sophisticated Neonatal Intensive Care Units among the Gulf Countries.
