On July 25, some of the Brigham’s tiniest patients and their families settled into our beautiful, newly expanded neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), as part of the first phase of a historic transition. Several departments across BWH coordinated in a makeshift command center to ensure the process ran safely and smoothly. In total, 25 infants were moved into the new space. It was an amazing, coordinated effort from Nursing, physicians, Respiratory Therapy, IT Services, Biomedical Engineering and families. It was a day to celebrate our new surroundings.
