First Minister officially opens £18m North Wales neonatal unit
The new £18m neonatal intensive care unit for North Wales located at Ysbyty Glan Clwyd was officially opened by First Minister Carwyn Jones on 12 September.
The Sub Regional Neonatal Intensive Care Centre is a 20-cot unit that is part of the North Wales Neonatal Network, which links special care units in Wrexham and Bangor.
It includes a transitional care service, a neonatal transport service and on-site parent accommodation. It meets the highest neonatal standards and offers significantly improved facilities for families of babies and for staff.
Mandy Cooke, Neonatal Service Manager, says: "We're extremely proud of our new unit and were delighted to show the First Minister around.
"The new facilities will help our neonatal team ensure poorly and premature babies, and their families, continue to receive outstanding care in North Wales for many years to come."
