Intermountain Health has expanded the use of its AngelEye cameras to the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) at Intermountain Health Utah Valley Hospital. The system allows parents and families to see their babies even when they’re not at the hospital.

The camera system has already been in place since 2020 for NICU patients at Intermountain Primary Children’s Hospital. Parents liked the system so much that Intermountain added the cameras at Intermountain Medical Center in Murray, and Intermountain McKay-Dee Hospital in Ogden and Intermountain St. George Regional Hospital and Utah Valley Hospital in 2023.

Having a child in the NICU is hard enough for parents, so being able to look at your phone and see your baby can be comforting. It gives families reassurance when they’re away from the hospital and can’t always be there.

The camera sits above the baby in their bed, and caregivers can move the camera depending on what the baby is doing. Families can access the live-stream video on any tablet or phone. Parents also decide who else can have access.

“This is another way Intermountain is using the power of technology and innovation to improve the quality of care and experiences for families receiving care at our hospitals.

The new cameras were made possible through funding from the hospital and donations from the public.
