Special Care Baby Units (SCBU) – Waitakere and North Shore

The Neonatal Units at North Shore Hospital and Waitakere Hospital care for sick babies and premature infants. While in the Neonatal Units, a Paediatrician is in charge of your baby's care. The nurses in the Neonatal Units all have training and experience in the care of sick babies.

If your baby is less than 32 weeks gestation and/or needs the assistance of a ventilator (breathing machine), he/she will be transferred for care at a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) such as at Auckland City Hospital.
