Hermitage, Tenn. (January 10, 2019) — TriStar Health which includes TriStar Summit Medical Center, has added NICVIEW web streaming cameras to the Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICUs) at five of its Nashville-area hospitals. The TriStar hospitals with this new technology include TriStar Centennial, TriStar StoneCrest, TriStar Summit, TriStar Hendersonville and TriStar Horizon medical centers.
Each NICVIEW camera is mounted on the wall near the infant’s bed and will allow families to view their babies 24/7 through a password protected livestream.
“We are incredibly excited to deploy this new technology, allowing families to still love on their newborn even when they are not able to be with them in person” said Brian P. Marger, CEO of TriStar Summit Medical Center. “The installation of these cameras furthers TriStar Summit’s personalized approach to medicine, promoting the best possible experience for our patients and their families.”
TriStar’s NICUs treat newborns who need additional care in their first days, weeks or months of life due to premature birth or complications that arise after delivery. TriStar Health also offers neonatal transport services, allowing critically-ill newborns throughout Middle Tennessee convenient access to the highly-specialized care offered at TriStar hospitals.
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.
Completion of the installation of all 75 NICVIEW cameras at area TriStar hospitals are expected by the end of January 2019. For more information about TriStar’s NICU facilities, as well as information about labor and delivery services, please visit TriStarHealth.com.
