The NICU at WVU Medicine Berkeley Medical Center is dedicated to our tiniest patients. Whether patients deliver at Berkeley Medical Center or Jefferson Medical Center, specialized care for babies born with low birth weight, prematurity and those recovering from serious conditions is available close to home. The providers in the NICU have telemedicine support from the pediatric specialists at WVU Medicine Children’s in Morgantown and an established relationship for transferring newborns to Morgantown for more specialized care. The NICU accepts transfers from Jefferson Medical Center for higher level of care and newborns returning from Ruby Memorial to complete treatment closer to home.
