Naming Opportunities


The recent renovation of the Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU) helped transform the previously open ward into one of the first in the world to feature a hybrid design suited to babies’ developmental needs, with private and semi-private patient rooms, as well as open bays for small groups of infants. In addition to enabling expert care, the NICU also serves as a living lab, informing research into new approaches for the serious problems premature babies can face at birth and in the years that follow.

Critically ill newborns often spend their first weeks—or even months—in the NICU. Following their discharge from the NICU, many of these babies will require special ongoing care to monitor and address developmental challenges. At the hospital’s new Center for Child Development (CCD), these tiny patients and their families receive the expert care and support they need. The CCD provides a comprehensive, team-based approach to outpatient care for at-risk infants and toddlers. Focusing on each child’s unique medical needs, the center also helps parents learn how to continue care at home. In addition, the CCD is dedicated to research, with our child development experts studying each child’s short-term and long-term outcomes from conception to kindergarten as they seek to improve care for medically fragile infants here at the Brigham and far beyond.

We would be honored to recognize your generosity to the Brigham by naming one of these spaces within the Newborn Intensive Care Unit or the Center for Child Development for you or your loved one:
