Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)

Lutheran Children's Hospital - NICU

Babies born at 23 weeks' gestation or after and full-term babies who are ill after birth are cared for in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Caring for these infants requires skills, technology and treatment specifically designed for critically ill newborns. Neonatologists are available 24 hours a day to provide intense medical attention to these infants, while nurses specially trained in neonatal care give constant attention to help babies and their parents through difficult times.

The Lutheran NICU serves as a referral destination for critically ill newborns in a 100-mile radius of the hospital. Babies who need specialized care are transported to Lutheran in one of the hospital's Mobile Intensive Care Units. A neonatal critical care nurse, a respiratory therapist and an emergency medical technician accompany all pediatric patients in the MICU.

Once infants are discharged from the NICU, a team of specialized pediatric and development specialists work with infants who need continued care. Babies are seen by specially trained neonatal physical, occupational and speech therapists and dietitians who help ensure infants thrive and reach their maximum potential of development.
