Welcome to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)– Penn State Health Children’s Hospital

This video is designed to let parents know what to expect when they are patients in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. (NICU)

Parents expect their babies will be born healthy. Yet, sometimes newborns need to be hospitalized. The 56-bed neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) at Penn State Health Children’s Hospital is led by a compassionate team of neonatologists (doctors who care for sick and premature newborns), neonatal-perinatal medicine fellows, neonatal advanced practice providers, pediatric residents, bedside neonatal nurses and other neonatal healthcare professionals.

As a Level IV NICU (the highest level NICU) and the only one between Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, our team provides complete and comprehensive, lifesaving care to the most complex and critically ill newborns and serves as a regional referral center. Our first NICU opened in 1972. Our new NICU is on the 8th floor of Penn State Health Children’s Hospital and opened in November 2020. Our NICU is the only one in central Pennsylvania to offer a full range of services – including the ability to perform surgery on-site 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Our team cares for nearly 800 babies each year, with about 30% admitted from outside hospitals.
