Sharp Grossman Hospital Features State-of-the-Art Level III NICU

An accomplished San Diego, CA-based real estate developer, Elliot Feuerstein has managed multiple shopping center developments. Also an active community leader, Elliot Feuerstein assisted with fundraising efforts for the Mary Birch Women’s Health Center at Sharp Hospital in San Diego, CA.

Sharp Hospital’s Women’s Health Center features a Level III neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) that provides high-level care to up to 24 newborns that require extra attention. In addition to specialized medical care and neonatal ventilators, the Sharp NICU offers a family-centered environment that invites parents to participate in health care decisions for their child.

Other ways the hospital ensures the highest level of care for infants is by supporting exclusive breastfeeding as well as prioritizing skin-to-skin contact between parents and baby. Nurses specially trained in developmental care help to support optimal brain and physical development for premature infants. The NICU also offers a secure online video system called NICVIEW to let parents view their baby even when they are away from the hospital.
