Intensive Care for Newborns

Ascension’s neonatal services provide advanced intensive care for premature babies and other newborns who need special attention.

About Intensive Care for Newborns

Ascension’s neonatal team is dedicated to caring for our tiniest, most vulnerable patients. Our compassionate experts include board-certified neonatologists, neonatal nurses, pediatric surgeons, respiratory therapists and other specialists.

Babies born prematurely, as well as newborns who experienced difficult deliveries, receive one-on-one observation and treatment in our special care nurseries.

In our advanced neonatal intensive care units (NICU), we provide a full range of services for preemie babies or babies born with serious illnesses. We treat many neonatal challenges such as pulmonary, metabolic, cardiac, hematological and neurological conditions.

Ascension’s NICU rooms are equipped with state-of-the-art monitoring systems and are designed with your family in mind. These rooms help reduce the risk of infection, use noise and light control to reduce stress for your baby, and give your family welcome privacy.
