Chances are your baby will be perfect in every way. But, if your baby is premature or requires intensive care, your newborn will receive expert care right here at Sequoia Hospital. Take a Birth Center orientation class or sign up for our prenatal classes at our Classes and Events page.

Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford

Our Level II Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is a six-bed special care nursery within our Birth Center. This NICU is staffed by doctors and nurses from Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford who specialize in neonatal care and are nationally recognized by U.S.News & World Report. Our Level II designation means Sequoia has the expertise and equipment to care for and stabilize high-risk newborns.

If you are discharged from the hospital while your baby remains in the Special Care Nursery, there are limited overnight facilities available for you and your family. Please talk to your nurse for more information. Family togetherness remains our first priority. 

Classes and Events

Because of the current COVID-19 pandemic, Sequoia Hospital has canceled prenatal and postnatal classes and events until further notice. Thank you for your understanding.
