Alder Hey

About Alder Hey

Neonatal babies who need to have emergency surgery need the love and care of their family more than ever. Alder Hey are building the first surgical neonatal unit where families can stay with their babies in private, comfortable rooms whilst still accessing expert care from their clinicians. In partnership with Liverpool Women’s Hospital, Alder Hey have designed an innovative facility packed with the technology and thoughtful enhancements that give babies and their families the best environment in which to thrive. The unit will join the child-centred hospital campus at Alder Hey and allow their partnership with Liverpool Women’s Hospital to grow even stronger to help develop their vision for world leading neonatal care.

Staying close to their fragile newborn, parents are central to the care pathway creating natural bonds and learning how to care for their poorly baby - all within close reach of specialists.

Line of sight monitoring technology means that staff at the hospital can keep a close eye on their tiny patients whilst providing a nurturing space for the families to be there for little one and support each other too. This will be the first unit of its kind in the UK; the Johnson’s Baby & Alder Hey partnership will help Alder Hey make this dream a reality for babies and their families who deserve to be by each other’s side every step of the way.
