Being a Level 3 NICU, the facility is well-equipped to accept prematurely born neonates at 24 weeks and above.

Explaining the facilities at Thumbay Hospital’s NICU, Mr. Akbar Moideen Thumbay said, “If a baby is delivered prematurely, then the delivery and neonatal care of the baby must take place at a tertiary care hospital, for better outcome and future health of the baby. We have a well-equipped Level 3 NICU, and the hospital is staffed with expert Gynecologists, Pediatricians and Neonatologists capable of handling all cases of pre-term pregnancies which are 24-weeks and above. Moreover, Thumbay Hospital follows a policy of ‘minimal handling of the newborn’ with regard to prematurely delivered babies, meaning minimal intervention in case the baby is born healthy.”
