Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)
Handled with Care
Having a baby is quite miraculous but sometimes newborns need extra attention. If your baby needs special care, the Rady Children's at Rancho Springs Level II Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is here to help put your mind at ease. The NICU is located just steps from our labor and delivery suites and is staffed by specialized healthcare professionals who can help with babies who were born prematurely or who have unusual medical conditions during their first days of life.
If your baby has to stay in the NICU, a team of specialized professionals, including nurses, neonatologists, therapists, nutritionists, lab technicians, pharmacists, chaplains and social workers, participates in individualized care plans for each individual baby.
The length of your baby's stay will depend on the severity of his or her condition, weight, gestational age and the readiness of you and your family to provide care at home.
