Neonatal Intensive Care Unit

mother and nurse with babyJanet Weis Children’s Hospital, Danville
Our physicians, nurses and other members of our clinical staff are specialists in caring for premature infants and other newborns who are suffering from serious medical conditions. Our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is designed to meet the serious, sometimes complex needs of your infant.

You are an important part of your child’s medical care team, so please ask questions at any time.

We encourage you to visit

As a parent or caregiver, seeing your baby as often as possible is very important—both for your child and for you. We strongly encourage you to visit.

When you cannot be here to visit, you are welcome to call the NICU and ask to speak to your baby’s nurse or physician. Together, we will see your baby through this difficult time.

Siblings, plus anyone who is ill or has been ill recently should check with our nursing staff before entering the NICU. Except for siblings, visitors must be at least 16 years old. Our NICU is closed for an hour several times each day. Our Family Lounge, located near the elevator near the unit, is available for you to visit with family and friends.
