NICUs are divided into three categories: Level I, II and III. A Level III NICU means that high-end subspeciality levels of paediatric critical care can be offered to the babies.
A level III NICU can provide stabilisation, allow for minor surgical procedures and offer continuous intensive care at subspeciality levels.
A level II NICU provides intensive care to babies and infants who are considered moderately ill while Level III NICU offers critical care to extremely ill and premature babies with even more advanced needs.
