Intensive Care Nursery (ICN)

The 30-bed intensive care nursery (ICN) cares for a combination of acutely ill infants as well as stable and growing premature infants.

Baby in ICN

With a philosophy of family as the center of the care team and lots of TLC, our experienced staff provides exceptional, critical care to this vulnerable population.

Our Neonatology Section cares for premature babies and those with infections, neurological problems, surgical needs, birth defects, and any other problems needing intensive care.
