Our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit is the only NICU in Iowa to have a Level IIIC designation, which is the highest level recognized by the American Academy of Pediatrics. This means that we care for the tiniest and most critically ill babies, offering the greatest range of neonatal services and support. The state-of-the-art facility houses up to 70 critically ill newborns, all in single rooms. The unit is equipped with the latest equipment and staffed by a large team of highly trained nurses and other staff. A laboratory within the NICU provides around-the-clock service.
