Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital's Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, which will provide specialized services for newborns, will formally open Monday following a final state inspection this week, the hospital announced Thursday.

The 11-bed Neonatal Intensive Care Unit will include the latest medical technology and will be supported by a highly specialized team of experts including doctors, nurses, respiratory care specialists, nutritionists, pharmacists, and physical and occupational therapists.

They will provide support for both newborn and mother.

A board-certified neonatologist will oversee care, and nurses with advanced training in infant care will provide continual monitoring.

The Valencia hospital's care unit recently gained approval from the California Department of Public Health. In addition, the state department approved the hospital's plan to expand cardiovascular services, hospital officials said.

"Over the last 10 months, physicians and medical staff leadership worked very closely with us to expand and implement new cardiac interventional services," said Henry Mayo President and CEO Roger E. Seaver in a statement.

"Some of the most experienced and well-respected cardiologists and cardiothoracic surgeons in the region have chosen to practice at Henry Mayo and bring their talents to the citizens of the Santa Clarita Valley."

Henry Mayo will offer a range of heart and cardiovascular services, including open heart surgery, valve replacement and coronary interventions.
