Golisano Children’s Hospital has highest NICU survival rate

The Regional Perinatal Intensive Care Center (RPICC) of Lee Memorial Health System was recently recognized for having the best neonatal survival rates of all RPICC centers in Florida. Lee Memorial Health System’s RPICC includes the high-risk OB unit at HealthPark Medical Center and the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at the Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida.

It is one of only 11 such facilities in the state, and the only one in the five-county Southwest Florida area. Its primary goals are to provide the best medical care to mothers during high-risk pregnancies, as well as care to low birth weight or critically ill infants while they are in the womb and after birth.
