NIDCAP certification as a hospital: Necessary or not?

Julie, OT Julie, OT (New) New

We are exploring the option of becoming NIDCAP certified as a hospital, and want to get a feel out there on how others stand on the topic. Is this effort highly recommended, or is it not that beneficial? Also, any suggestions for assisting in funding of this, as it is quite expensive. Thanks a lot!
