NICU North

NICU North

The IWK Health Centre’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, known as NICU North, cares for critically ill infants and their families from across the Maritimes. Each day on the unit parents express their gratitude as they watch their babies experience many ‘firsts’ in their lives.

Watch the video below to see a glimpse into what life is like on NICU North for patients Ellis Duggan and Eleri Pembridge and their families.


We are happy to report that Ellis is now at home with his parents and is doing great. Eleri has been moved to the IWK’s oncology inpatient unit where she is still receiving chemotherapy. Her cancer is currently in remission and she is getting stronger every day.

Excellence is in your hands.
