Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)

Welcome to Redlands Community Hospital's Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), where we specialize in providing top-quality care for premature babies and infants who require additional medical support. As a Level 3 NICU, we ensure that every baby receives the highest level of attention until they are ready to go home or transition to our Couplet Care unit, where they can room with their mother.

At Redlands Community Hospital, we are dedicated to providing exceptional care, advanced medical technologies, and unwavering support to both you and your baby throughout your NICU experience. Your baby's health and well-being are our top priorities, and we are here to assist you every step of the way.

Our NICU is equipped with advanced technology and specialized equipment to observe and monitor each baby's vital signs closely. We strive to create an environment that offers the perfect balance of warmth, nourishment, and respiratory support, tailored to the individual needs of each baby.

Our dedicated team of experts includes Neonatologists, Registered Nurses, Clinical Nurse Specialists, Respiratory Therapists, Lactation consultants, Speech and Occupational Therapists, Social Workers, and Pharmacists. They work collaboratively to provide comprehensive and compassionate care to both the babies and their families.

We believe that parents should be actively involved in their baby's care journey. We encourage you to participate in your baby's daily care routines and decision-making processes. Our team will provide you with frequent updates about your baby's progress, ensuring that you feel informed and empowered throughout the entire process.

We fully support and promote breastfeeding in our NICU for parents who wish to do so. Our dedicated lactation consultants are available to offer guidance and assistance to mothers, ensuring successful breastfeeding experiences. In cases where a mother is unable to produce sufficient breast milk, we also provide human donor breast milk as a safe and healthy alternative.

When your baby reaches the point where intensive care is no longer required, our experienced nurses will guide you through the transition process, equipping you with the knowledge and skills needed to care for your baby at home. You will receive comprehensive discharge instructions and ongoing support as you continue your journey at home.
