Having a baby in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is an emotional rollercoaster for any parent. But having a team of pediatric neonatology specialists who provide cutting-edge technology with sensitive, healing hands, can help a parent get through this chapter with a little more ease.

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