About the NICU
A state-of-the-art unit equipped with the latest advancements in medical technology, HSHS St. Vincent Children’s NICU ensures every baby gets the best possible start in life.
Our NICU is a 26 bed level III unit providing a quiet and soothing environment to promote healing, growth and development for every infant, from extremely premature infants to full term critically ill infants.
Each caregiver has completed special training in the care of newborn infants with special needs. The NICU’s highly experienced team of professionals includes neonatologists, neonatal nurse practitioners, nurses, respiratory therapists and developmental specialists who compassionately care for newborn infants born extremely premature, critically ill or needing surgical intervention. A neonatologist is always on site to attend difficult births and provide immediate diagnosis and specialized care.
