Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)
Mission Children's Hospital is home to the region's only Level III Neonatal ICU and hosts approximately 800 admissions each year. Eight neonatologists and eight neonatal nurse practitioners lead care along with neonatal nurses, pediatric respiratory therapists and many infant-focused multidisciplinary care team members. This team cares for all high-risk newborns with prematurity, infections, respiratory distress syndrome, surgical and genetic diagnoses. The team strives to actively partner with parents to provide compassionate and outstanding care.
Huff Center Therapies Developmental Follow-Up Program
Developmental Follow-Up Program at Mission Children's Hospital sees
babies who need special care after birth, are at risk for developmental
delays or have ongoing medical needs.
Our team of medical and developmental specialists follows children
during their early years to prevent, identify or treat problems related
to development, growth, nutrition and overall health.
We work with primary care providers, medical specialists and other
community agencies to coordinate care for children and families. We are
the only program in the region that integrates developmental services
with comprehensive medical follow up for at-risk infants and toddlers.
Many patients are referred to our program from the NICU or other pediatric units of Mission Children's Hospital. We also accept referrals from primary care physicians.
