Special Units for Surgery, Neuroscience and Heart
Within our NICU, special areas are designated for babies with surgical, neurological and cardiac needs.
- We are one of only a handful of hospitals in the country to offer a surgical unit in our NICU, providing specialized care for babies who need surgery. Our neonatology and pediatric surgery teams collaborate at a level not seen at most hospitals, and together they have set specific standards for caring for babies who need surgery. Learn more about our Surgical NICU.
- Special rooms of our NICU are designated for the Neurocritical NICU, where we have the expertise and equipment to carefully treat babies with neurological issues such as seizures, asphyxiation and brain damage. Our pediatric board-certified neurologists are available 24/7 to partner with our neonatologists to make a specialized treatment plan together for our patients. Learn more about our Neurocritical NICU.
- Our NICU includes a Cardiac Unit where we offer fetal testing for mothers with high-risk pregnancies that may result in congenital heart diseases. Our fetal-certified echocardiographers can perform an early diagnosis, allowing us to create a coordinated care team that includes cardiologists, perinatologists, neonatologists and cardiothoracic surgeons before a baby is even born.
