St. Dominic Hospital NICU

St. Dominic Hospital houses a 23-bed, Level III NICU where more than 200 babies are admitted each year. Of those, only a small fraction were low birth weight, which can be partially attributed to our prenatal care efforts. Our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) provides quality care with Board Certified neonatologists and specially trained nurses, social workers, respiratory, occupational and physical therapists.

St. Dominic’s NICU Offers:

  • 24/7 in-house neonatal nurse practitioner coverage
  • Small baby unit opening January 2024 for babies born earlier than 28 weeks’ gestation
  • Dedicated discharge coordinator
  • Dedicated lactation specialists
  • Member of the International Vermont Oxford Quality Collaborative

Babies with Books NICU Read-a-Thon

Our annual read-a-thon helps premature babies recognize the voices of their parents and promotes brain development at an early age.


During this week-long event each May, families with babies in our NICU log the hours they spend providing “kangaroo care” – holding baby skin-to-skin to promote brain development, attachment-building and immunity-boosting.
