The Neonatology service at Children’s Health Ireland looks after new borns with surgical or complex medical needs. CHI is the national quaternary (highest-level) neonatal centre for Ireland. Young babies are transferred to CHI from neonatal units throughout the country and on admission through the Emergency Department.

The service includes special care, high-dependency care and intensive care. High-dependency care is for babies who have additional needs compared to those in special care. Intensive care is reserved for babies with particular needs such as ventilator support.

Our highly qualified staff provides a family-centred, holistic approach to care. We do our utmost to protect the privacy and dignity of your child at all times during their stay.
