Mercy Children's Hospital

Services - Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU)

Care Team

In the Newborn Intensive Care Unit, it is our belief that care is family-centered. You will be included right from the start in planning your child's care. You will work with a team of specialists from a variety of medical disciplines who are specially trained in newborn intensive care.

Whether your child is in the NICU for a short period of observation and stabilization or for a long time because of extreme prematurity or complicated illness, you are essential to his/her care and well-being. You are a partner in the effort to speed your baby’s recovery, so we encourage you to communicate even your slightest concerns or suggestions.

Your baby is in a Level III Perinatal Center, the highest designation awarded by the state.

The healthcare professionals caring for your child may include:

  • Developmental/Behavioral Pediatrician
  • Clinical Nurse Specialist
  • Neonatal Nurse Practitioner
  • Staff Nurse
  • Lactation Consultant
  • Resident
  • Health Unit Coordinator
  • Pediatric Therapists
  • Pastoral Care Staff
  • Dietitians
