Support & partnerships

A supportive family for those first months of life

The NICU team is more than just a group of highly trained and specialized medical professionals. It’s a genuine smile at the sight of a milestone achieved. It’s an emotional and sometimes heartbreaking end to a shift. It’s a supportive shoulder and life coach to a concerned parent struggling with their new reality. It is a family. At Medtronic we strive to be more than just a medical technology company; we aim to be a supportive member of that family.

The tools to support the newest lives

Neonates are extraordinary patients and require extraordinary care. Their newly developed bodily systems need to be treated gently and promptly to avoid long-lasting complications. The Medtronic suite of NICU products are specifically designed with these fragile neonates in mind to help support the NICU team in monitoring those subtle warning signs and delivering just the right treatment. Because even something so small, can make a big difference.
