Our NICU Hospitals
Mercy San Juan Medical Center: Newly Expanded Level III NICU
With our team of highly trained health care professionals, Mercy San Juan’s NICU has long been a leader in caring for the smallest of newborns. And recently, our NICU underwent a $35 million expansion strengthening our ability to provide exceptional care. Proudly named the Robert S. and Star Pepper Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, our new spacious, state-of-the-art facility is equipped with the latest technology and offers additional capabilities and comforts for both baby and family.
Methodist Hospital: Level II NICU
Methodist Hospital's NICU includes 12 beds and is equipped with the latest technologically advanced equipment and specially trained staff to care for infants born premature or seriously ill. It is located on the second floor in the Family Birth Center, with a well-appointed family waiting room, meal preparation and other support areas. In the event of a premature birth, our neonatologists (physicians who specialize in premature and high risk babies) are ready to care of the tiniest of newborns.
Both Dignity Health NICUs serving the Sacramento region provide family-centered care, encouraging the family to learn every aspect of their newborn's stay at our hospitals.
