Why Choose Us For Your Baby’s Critical Care
- The best in care: We treat newborns who need the most complex care in our 84-bed, Level 4 neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). We’re one of only a few NICUs in Southern California to earn the highest designation in expertise.
- All the specialists you need: In addition to neonatologists, your baby is supported by an entire team of specialists throughout our hospital and the San Manuel Maternity Pavilion.
- Neurological care: Our NeuroNICU works with pediatric neurologists to diagnose, treat and monitor your baby’s neurologic injuries or disorders. Our commitment to neuroprotective care also extends to babies in the NICU who have not been diagnosed with a neurological condition.
- Premature care: If your baby is born before 30 weeks, our Small Baby Unit is ready to provide highly specialized care.
- Clinical trials: You and your baby get access to the latest advancements developed by our pioneering researchers. You may be able to participate in research studies and clinical trials not found elsewhere in the region.
