Services & Treatments

Babies born within the Mountain West's five-state region with severe, life-threatening conditions are treated by our team of pediatric neonatology specialists. Babies we treat receive:

  • medical and surgical interventions for serious congenital birth defects, such as defects of the heart, brain, and internal organs, and
  • infant treatment for sepsis, pulmonary hypertension, and prematurity with additional complications.

We support infants through their life-threatening conditions and provide:

  • high frequency jet ventilation, nitric oxide, extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (a device which circulates and oxygenates blood to allow the infant's heart or lungs to heal),
  • cerebral/regional oximetry to monitor perfusion of specific organs, and
  • total body cooling for brain injury.

We also treat premature babies and babies who have low birth weight.
