Description:
A neonatal intensive care unit, usually shortened NICU (typically pronounced "Nickyou") and also called a Special Care Nursery, newborn intensive care unit, intensive care nursery (ICN), and special care baby unit (SCBU , is a unit of a hospital specializing in the care of ill or premature newborn infants.

The problem of premature and congenitally ill infants is not a new one, by any means. For centuries, people have attempted to save infants that had previously died from lack of care. There are scholarly papers published as early as the 17th and 18th century that attempt to share knowledge of interventions and what qualifies a child as viable

A NICU is typically directed by one or more neonatologists and staffed by nurses, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, physician assistants, resident physicians, and respiratory therapist. Many other ancillary disciplines and specialists are available at larger units.
