NICVIEW® Camera System

Having a baby in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) can be emotionally and financially draining on the entire family. Covenant Children’s is proud to offer NICVIEW®, a state-of-the-art camera system that gives families the opportunity to watch their baby in real time, for all 43 of our NICU beds.

The NICVIEW® cameras are accessed through a simple and secure web portal or a downloadable iOS or Android phone app. The caregiver is given a secure user-name and password by Covenant Children’s staff. They can then chose who else they wish to share this login information with – be that grandparents, siblings, or anyone else they so desire. The system is designed to reduce parents’ anxiety between visits – particularly for those that cannot stay constantly with their child in the NICU due to jobs, finances, etc. As the only licensed regional children’s hospital, this technology enables us to support our families from the region in a truly family-centric manner.

Upon admission to the NICU, caregivers will be given the choice to participate and, if they elect to do so, login details.

The NICVIEW® camera system was funded by generous donors from the community, as well as Covenant’s own Caregivers who contributed to the Covenant Cares employee campaign. If you would like to support continued access for families, consider donating to the Covenant Health Foundation and designating your donation to Covenant Children’s and/or the NICVIEW® camera system specifically.
