NICU services we offer

Our skilled NICU care team provides advanced care to babies born between 32 and 39 weeks of gestation. We also offer lactation consultations and access to social workers.

Our Level II NICU

Although many infants are born healthy, sometimes special care is needed. Many factors may lead to a newborn being admitted to the NICU. They might be born with a low birth weight or a congenital disease, or perhaps faced complications during delivery. But no matter what type of care your little one needs, our NICU staff are committed to helping them heal.

Neonatal intensive care units have designated levels, and we offer Level II NICU specialty care. This level of NICU is specifically designed for babies born between 32 and 39 weeks of gestation. Our neonatologists are specially equipped and trained to care for babies born prematurely during this period of time.

If you need access to other types of pediatric care, including care for toddlers, adolescents and young adults, you can find a provider through our network of TriStar Health hospitals.
