Cox South's NICU moves into new space

Thirty years ago CoxHealth made an impressive move, transporting its Intensive Care Nursery patients from Cox North to the new Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Cox Medical Center South.

Wednesday was another monumental move as the tiny lives in the NICU were carefully moved into the new NICU inside the West Tower.Each baby required a complete team of experts on hand as they were slowly transported through hallways to their now private rooms. On Thursday, the children in the pediatrics unit will be moved to their private rooms, completing the move of inpatients into the West Tower.

The CoxHealth Library shared a few images from the last time we made a NICU move -- here are a few highlights from the move from Cox North to Cox South in 1985:
