The Newborn Care Department treats thousands of newborns born at Lis Maternity & Women's Hospital every year, including healthy babies, premature infants and babies needing special medical care.

​From the first moments of life

Newborn care begins immediately after birth, with parent-baby bonding, optional breastfeeding, and an initial examination and evaluation.

The infant is then placed under special admission observation for several hours and then transferred to the mother if she has chosen the rooming-in option, or placed in the nursery. Lis Hospital offers a range of rooming-in possibilities, from full rooming in, in which the baby can spend the entire day with its mother, or partial rooming-in, based on the mother's preferences.


Baby-focused care

Each newborn infant undergoes a complete physical examination by a pediatrician before discharge. Pediatricians are also on call 24 hours a day for any medical need that may arise.

Blood tests and treatments are performed, and immunizations are given according to the Ministry of Health's requirements. When necessary, other tests, such as special blood tests, x-rays, or ultrasounds, are conducted after pediatrician and parental medical counseling.

Intensive care for special situations

Newborns needing special medical attention may be transferred to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) for monitoring and/or treatment. 


A healthy send-off

The Lis medical team provides quality care to prepare babies and their parents for discharge home, including offering instructions for newborn care, hygiene, feeding and medical follow-up.
