In Alberta, 1 in 9 births (more than 5,000 infants each year) require admission to a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) for treatment (2019)
There are 14 NICUs in Alberta with neonatal intensive care services available in all Zones
The NICU Standing Committee provides a provincial forum for clinicians, families, and other stakeholders to improve care, outcomes and supports at all Alberta NICUs and address neonatal health issues from birth to discharge from the NICU
Our work takes place on historical and contemporary Indigenous lands, including the territories of Treaty 6, Treaty 7 & Treaty 8 and the homeland of the Métis Nation of Alberta and 8 Métis Settlements. We also acknowledge the many Indigenous communities that have been forged in urban centres across Alberta.
