The Institute for Women and Newborn Health (IWNH) is a five-story building that caters to pregnant women, inborn babies, and women with gynecological problems.

The SPMC IWNH became functional on May 1, 2018. The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit is considered to be a very stressful workplace. Cheerful art inside the NICU could help uplift the mood of parents, guardians, the medical team, and nursing staff.
