Neonatal Intensive Care at Sky Ridge
Level III NICU, Caring for Sick and Premature Babies
As a Level III NICU, Sky Ridge offers comprehensive care to some of the smallest patients in our community. While no parent wants to think about having a child in the NICU, families at Sky Ridge can be assured that their babies are receiving the very best medical care and support, which includes appropriate equipment, technology, staffing and access to sub-specialist pediatricians to care for specific problems. Our NICU provides the best environment for premature and ill babies, born as young as 24 weeks, to grow until their parents can care for them just like a full-term baby.
Our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) Includes:
- 23 private rooms
- One triplet room and three twin rooms
- Two parent "rooming in" rooms for times near admission or discharge when parents need to be close to baby
- Ronald McDonald Family Room
- State-of-the-art monitors and ventilators

Dr. Toney is a physician affiliated with Pediatrix/Obstetrix, a nationwide practice of physicians founded in 1979 who provide specialized care for high-risk babies, children and mothers.
