For newborns who need intensive medical attention, St. Joseph's offers a caring environment combined with advanced technology and highly skilled neonatologists (doctors specializing in premature and high-risk babies), nurses, and respiratory therapists to provide specialized care. We care for over 500 babies a year in our NICU.

We also offer a developmental care program known as the high-risk follow up clinic, which allows us to track certain patients after they have been discharged from the NICU. In addition, we have the St. Joseph’s Donor Milk Program where we work with Prolacta Bioscience. Prolacta produces specialty nutritional formulas made exclusively from human milk for critically ill premature infants.
We encourage you to ask questions about anything you don’t understand. Our doctors and nurses are always willing and able to answer.
