Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)
We’re bringing the latest technology to serve the most vulnerable among us in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
WHY YOUR SUPPORT MATTERS
The ability to save tiny lives and comfort families facing the premature arrival of a child, or the delivery of a child in distress, is undoubtedly one of the most rewarding ways a donor could impact a life.
Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center’s Level III NICU provides a seamless spectrum of specialized care.
We launched the Labor & Delivery and NICU Campaign to raise $2 million to acquire advanced technology and equipment to match the outstanding expertise of our physicians and nurses. Your contribution has directly influenced our ability to meet the needs of our patients.

Giraffe OmniBedsThese incubators act as a substitute womb, insulating and protecting babies as they continue to develop. At the same time, the incubators allow our nurses to weigh the baby and quickly intervene when the newborn is in distress.
Cooling equipmentThis equipment is used in a non-invasive process to regulate the baby’s body temperature and keep it at healthy levels. Maintaining a healthy body temperature is vital to suppressing trauma on important organs like the brain, heart and liver when a premature baby has been deprived of oxygen.
TransportersThese vehicles are essentially mini NICU units on wheels. They are used to carry vulnerable babies from other medical centers to Providence Saint Joseph. The transporters are equipped with monitors, ventilators and cooling mechanisms for babies who need advanced treatment.
WebcamsSeparation from their babies can create real distress for families. That is why we have equipped our Giraffe OmniBeds with webcams, to allow parents and authorized viewers to access continuous footage of their newborn, 24/7, from anywhere in the world.
A donation makes a difference. Here’s proof.
