Some babies arrive right on schedule, but others arrive too early or with special healthcare needs. With the largest Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU) in the state, Utah Valley Regional offers specialized care close to home for these infants and their families.
The expanded 55-bed, Level III Newborn Intensive Care Unit at Utah Valley Regional Medical Center practices family centered care, with the mission statement, “NICU is Home.” Parents are an integral part of the healthcare team, which includes:
- Neonatal nurse practitioners
- Occupational therapists
- Social workers
- Care managers
- Specially-trained nurses and respiratory therapists
In our spacious unit, parents find a home away from home. Some parents may attend their precious little one in the NICU for weeks, so having a comfortable, home-like environment is important.
The NICU features:
- Comfortable rocking chairs
- Private and semi-private rooms
- Individual lockers for each family
- Refrigerators for breast milk
- Bedside breast milk warmers
- Bedside cameras with web access
