Newborns who are born prematurely or with serious or life-threatening illnesses can expect to receive the very best care at Regional. Our Level II NICU is certified by the California Children's Services and is one of two such nurseries in the area.
The NICU is staffed by a board-certified/board-eligible neonatologist around the clock to ensure readiness for any emergency and to provide the highest quality of care.
Our NICU is able to care for babies who:
- Are born prematurely
- Require respiratory support
- Need antibiotic therapy
Visit Your Baby Around the Clock
You can visit your baby in Regional’s NICU 24 hours a day. Our 6-bed unit provides specialized medical care for babies who need around-the-clock care. Our nurses and physicians will work with you to develop an individualized and developmentally appropriate care plan for your baby.
Communication will not be a barrier during your stay. Our multicultural staff speaks several languages and dialects. We also have access to the Cyracom language translation help line to assist patients who speak other languages.
