Beating the Odds in the NICU

For babies staying in the Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, beating the odds is a matter of life and death. The Schumacher family is just one of hundreds of families each year who depend on us to give preemies a fighting chance, in one of the best NICUs in the country. The medical staff in the NICU understand the importance of both compassion and communication with parents of these delicate infants. “We remember it’s their children first, our patients second,” explains Dr. Robert Insoft, Medical Director of the NICU.
