Neonatal Intensive Care Unit

Since 1935, Holston Valley Medical Center has been an innovator in pediatric care, with state-of-the-art services available to newborns and their families. The hospital opened Northeast Tennessee’s first neonatal intensive care unit 20 years ago, and its expertise continues to grow. Holston Valley's Level III NICU has 15 dedicated beds, and its skilled physicians and staff members care for babies delivered as early as 24 weeks of age — newborns requiring the very highest level of care in order to thrive.

A specially certified NICU medical team also provides these important services to ensure the safety and wellbeing of your newborn:

  • Hearing screenings for all newborns
  • Car seat “challenge” tests for babies prior to their ride home

The NICU at Holston Valley further benefits patients through its partnership with the Vermont Oxford NICU Network, an organization that continuously works to improve the quality and safety of care to newborns and their families.
