Why Us?

Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU)

Each year, 500 babies throughout Arizona and the Southwest are admitted to our newborn intensive care nursery. Their healing starts here.

Our NICU has a staff of more than 100 healthcare professionals, all specialized in the unique care of critically ill and premature infants. We offer many life-saving services, including operating as a regional referral center for ECMO, a heart-lung bypass procedure that uses special equipment to facilitate the work of an infant's heart and/or lungs while they rest, recover and develop.

NICU patients have easy access to consultation services and resources from Phoenix Children's large staff of pediatric specialists and sub-specialists. Our NICU also offers 33 beds on our main campus, supporting infants born throughout Arizona needing a higher level of neonatal surgery.
