TriStar Health is adding 75 NICVIEW web-streaming cameras to the Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICUs) at five of its Nashville-area hospitals, which include TriStar Centennial, TriStar StoneCrest, TriStar Summit, TriStar Hendersonville and TriStar Horizon medical centers.
Each NICVIEW camera will be mounted on the wall near the infant's bed and will allow families to view their babies 24/7 through a password protected livestream.
"NICVIEW cameras will give families the opportunity to connect with their infant and feel close to them no matter where they are" said Heather J. Rohan, president of TriStar Health. "The installation of these cameras will provide a more personalized approach to medicine and ensure the best possible experience for our patients and their families."
Many NICU families travel long distances from their homes which may limit the amount of time they can spend with their newborns. The new NICVIEW cameras are especially important for those families, allowing them to stay connected and close to their child.
