Grace Centre for Newborn Care

While it is not part of the Heart Centre for Children as such, some of our patients spend some time in the Grace Centre for Intensive Newborn Care (GCNC) at the Children's Hospital at Westmead (CHW).  This department incorporates a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), High Dependency Unit, Department of Neonatology, Research Unit and a Developmental follow-up clinic. The GCNC provides a family centred model of care with a focus on supporting families whose infants require intensive care.  Infants are admitted for surgery for congenital or acquired acute conditions (45%), congenital heart conditions requiring surgery (35%) and with complex medical issues (20%). The GCNC has a dedicated research unit with research focussed on all aspects of the care of the high risk infants, from prenatal to long term follow-up.
