In 2018, the NICU underwent an expansion, doubling the size of the unit. The new, state-of-the-art facility now accommodates 15 infant beds and a hybrid model that allows space for parents to stay overnight with their infants. The NICU hosts a family-friendly atmosphere, with a lounge for visitors and a comfortable and private breast-feeding area.
Lifelong member and past Auxiliary president, Nancy Virginia Moore, was devoted to Chester County Hospital and The Women's Auxiliary.
Over her lifetime, Nancy's generous gifts have impacted thousands of patients throughout the hospital. Nancy left the majority of her estate to the hospital she loved--her gift was instrumental in funding the NICU renovation.
At Chester County Hospital, parents are recognized as essential members of our care team. We encourage and support parental participation throughout their infant's time in the NICU.

We invite parents to:
- Attend daily family-centered bedside rounds

- Express concerns, ask questions and take notes
