Sacred Heart’s Spokane Level IV Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is located just one floor above the Birth Place. Its close proximity offers comfort to moms who have had high-risk pregnancies or whose babies have been born with conditions that threaten their health.
NICU physicians and nurses are highly skilled and trained in caring for acutely ill babies. Patient conditions most often treated in the NICU include respiratory distress; congenital problems including congenital heart, gastrointestinal and neurological defects; and infection.
Parents are welcome and encouraged to spend time in the NICU with their babies. Staff members will provide individualized attention so parents learn how to care for their babies and prepare to take them home. A rooming in program allows parents to stay in the hospital overnight.
