February 22 2021 – When a new bundle of joy requires extra special medical care in the Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, parents and extended family might feel overwhelmed. At West Boca Medical Center, the medical staff works hard to relieve those fears, by caring for any premature or at-risk baby.
Further enhancing this care, the hospital is now the only one in Palm Beach and North Broward County, to have installed the NICVIEW 2™ Live Streaming Camera Systems in its Level III NICU, the highest level of care available. Parents and their family members can now see their baby at all times, even when they cannot be there in person. The password-protected camera provides parents and their family members a secure virtual window to their newborn in the NICU.
“This new and protected technology is giving families and loved ones another way to connect with their baby even when they can’t be present all of the time in our Level III NICU,” said George Rizzuto, chief executive officer of West Boca Medical Center. “We understand the challenges families face when their child is in the NICU, often unexpectedly, so we are trying to take concerns about separation out of the equation. Families can see their baby at any time, and feel secure knowing they are getting the very best care possible at our hospital.”
Some of the benefits of the NICVIEW 2™ include:
•On-Demand HD Quality Video Streaming
•Encrypted Password Protected Software
•Available for families 24/7
West Boca Medical Center is the only 5-Star Hospital in Labor and Delivery, and the only Level III NICU in Boca Raton. For more information, call 866-724-6002 or visit our website at www.westbocamedctr.com/NICU.
