The neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) is an area of the hospital designed to meet the needs of babies who require specialized medical care. Sometimes, an NICU is called a special care nursery or newborn intensive care.
If your baby needs the NICU, Dignity Health doctors have the experience and technology you need. Chandler Regional and St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center have neonatal intensive care units to care for the tiniest and sickest babies. If you would like to learn more about our neonatal intensive care units in Arizona, schedule a tour at one of our birthing centers, or register for birthing classes near you by calling 844.898.8079.
