Neonatal Intensive Care

Our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) provides highly specialized, family centered care for newborns that require extra attention. Our dedicated team is prepared to meet the needs of our tiniest patients, from preterm infants, to our full term newborns that need a little extra support.

Especially Designed Nursery

Our 16 bed unit features sophisticated monitoring equipment that is used to track your baby’s heart and respiratory rates. Premature babies require low stimulation so we have created a quiet and dimly lit environment to help nurture these special babies.

Dedicated Doctors and Staff

Our experienced team of health care professionals is well prepared to offer a full range of specialized services, using state of the art technology. Some of the services we provide include:

  • Dedicated NICU resuscitation team, which attends high risk deliveries and all cesarean deliveries
  • Therapeutic "Whole Body Cooling" for newborns who have suffered brain injury
  • High Risk Follow Up Program, which offers developmental follow up for high risk newborns up to age three

Family Centered Care

At St. John’s, we believe family is an important part of the healing process for our patients. This philosophy extends to our NICU, where family members, including siblings, are encouraged to visit and participate in the baby’s care. Parents are welcomed in our NICU at all times, and are encouraged to participate in our daily bedside rounds with our nurses and physicians.
