Dunedin Hospital’s new Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and Children’s Ward is ”world-class”, providing reassurance for parents, and an excellent training facility for young specialists, Prime Minister John Key said yesterday, at the official opening of the $7 million unit. 

The long-awaited new ward, which replaces cramped, outdated facilities, has been accepting patients since December.  The unit was part of a $24.38 million package announced in 2010.
