BOISE --The first and only neonatal intensive care unit will open in Canyon County on Sunday, January 5.

KTVB got an inside look at the Saint Alphonsus Birkeland Maternity, NICU and Heart Center Thursday.

Hospital representatives say many who live in Canyon County previously had to travel to Boise for these services.

The Birkeland Maternity, NICU and Heart Center advertises luxury birthing rooms with jetted tubs, massage service, and accomodations for guests.

A community open house for the facility will be held on Saturday. The facility has been under construction for over a year now.
