Committee to Establish Recommended Standards for Newborn ICU Design

These standards have now been disseminated to more than 25 countries and several hundred newborn ICUs, architectural firms, state planning agencies, and medical professionals. Because upgrading these standards is a continuing process, we are anxious to get your feedback regarding any changes or additions you think are important for these standards so that we can incorporate these into our discussions. In addition, we would like to know the impact these standards are having on neonatal unit design and care. Please contact us to let us know how you are using these standards.

The following organizations have reviewed and endorsed the recommendations published in this report:
