Tripler Army Medical Center is opening a new neonatal intensive care unit this week.

Thursday's ceremony is coming after nearly two years of renovations at the Hawaii military hospital.

The medical center says the unit has state-of-the-art technology to keep babies in a womb-like environment.

The walls, floors and ceilings have soundproof material to that ensure sound levels are at neonatal standards.

The center says the rooms provide an optimal environment for babies' hearing, growth and overall development.

The unit is the first of its kind on Oahu. It's also the first of its kind for a Department of Defense facility.
