Neonatal Intensive Care Unit
A Place to Heal
The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) in HSHS St. John's Children’s Hospital provides care to more than 700 premature babies and other seriously ill infants each year.
We are a 40-bed, Level III NICU serving patients across south-central Illinois. The NICU also serves the South Central Perinatal Region.
Our expert care teams of neonatologists, nurse practitioners, RNs and respiratory therapists are specially trained to work with our smallest patients. Our team also includes pharmacists, dietitians, lactation specialists, pediatric rehabilitation therapists, social workers and spiritual care staff members who provide outstanding service for our patients.
