Supporting the most fragile babies in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)
The Randall Children’s Hospital NICU cares for more than 550 newborns each year and has some of the nation’s best quality results and survivor rates. The NICU is dedicated to caring for critically ill and premature infants. All care is evidence-based, continually updated according to national and international best practices, and represents the most advanced approach in caring for fragile newborns. We treat infants born up to 16 weeks early to 28 days old, some weighing less than a pound, as well as multiples and the very ill.
