The Neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) at OMNI RK is the best in Andhra Pradesh in terms of design, medical infrastructure, equipment and quality of care. This 30 bedded NICU has world-class warmers, ventilators, phototherapy units and other equipment. It has separate cubicles for inborn, outborn and septic babies. What sets the NICU apart is the fact that it offers facilities which very few health care centres in India are equipped with.

Dr K Seshagiri, the best neonatologist in Vizag who has completed his DM Neonatology from the prestigious Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education and Research, Chandigarh. He is the first neonatologist of Visakhapatnam and has more than 10 years of post DM experience and is Chief Neonatologist of our Department of Neonatology. Survival rates in our NICU are more than 90% because of strict asepsis protocols by trained Nurses, good infrastructure and dedicated registrars of our department.

Especially for gynaecologists who are planning premature deliveries because of maternal and fetal indications and high-risk cases, they can shift the mothers to our hospital admit under their care and utilise our facilities (in utero transfer), because it is very difficult to shift the sick preterm babies safely.
