Responsibilities

The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Randall Children’s Hospital is a 45-bed unit that provides patient care services to newborn infants with acute and potentially life threatening conditions and chronic or disabling conditions resulting from prematurity, birth insult or trauma, or the presence of congenital defects.  Infants are admitted directly from the Hospital’s adjacent Labor and Delivery Unit, or are transferred from other health care facilities within a geographic referral region.
