The Neonatal Service at Christchurch Women’s Hospital is an acute service providing secondary/tertiary care to new-born babies born prematurely or with surgical, congenital and medical complications following birth. We are a purpose built 41 bedded unit compromised of 11 intensive care and 30 special care cot’s with our catchment area covering approximately 20,000 square kilometres of the South Island.
