Neonatal Intensive Care

Most babies are born healthy and full of wonder. However, sometimes the need arises for more advanced care. For babies born prematurely or those having special health needs, we have a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) or special care nursery available. Our 30-bed Neonatal Intensive Care Unit is the most advanced of its kind in our region, and has long held a Level III designation, the highest awarded by the Ohio Department of Health for the care of critically ill newborns. We also offer families consultative services related to the medical, nursing and/or nutritional needs of newborns.

The NICU is an intensive care nursery for babies who are born premature, have problems during the birth process, or show health concerns within the first few days. We have a team of experts who specialize in premature infant care and babies who are critically ill.

Our team of caregivers includes: 

  • Neonatologists and pediatricians
  • Neonatal nurse practitioners
  • Registered nurses
  • Respiratory therapists
  • Social workers
  • Pharmacists
  • Chaplains

Parents and family members are also an important part of the care team, and they are welcomed and encouraged to visit and support their baby during the care and healing time in the special care nursery.
