In brief: No

Every hospital does have an area to transition babies while they maybe experiencing problems after birth.
However, not all hospitals have a neonatal intensive care unit. If you have a prenatal diagnosis that recommends or suggests neonatal care after delivery you should deliver in a hospital with a level one or two nicu.

In brief: Define hospital

Some smaller hospitals do not even have nurseries, much less a neo intensive care unit.
In my city, one of the two has a good neo unit. The other concentrates on mother/baby care and their small nursery is only used for lower level problems or to prepare babies for transferr to a neo unit.

In brief: No.

Many do but most hospitals do not have nicus.
Almost all children's hospitlals and most university and teaching hospitals have them. Certain referral hospitals and most hospitals with larger obstetrical services also are likely to have one. You would need to check with each hospital individually.
