Common reasons newborns go to NICU

Every newborn and infant who comes to our NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) receives the highest quality of care. We use the most effective forms of life support to help babies breathe, get the oxygen they need and maintain a stable body temperature.

Common diagnoses in the NICU:

After a baby leaves the NICU, he or she may receive follow-up care for up to 3 years in a specially designed developmental program on the Medical Center campus. The program includes developmental and medical assessments to monitor your baby’s health and well-being. Specialty care is coordinated with other specialists in our Children’s Hospital.
