Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)
When it comes to caring for your baby, truly the smallest of miracles, you want nothing less than the most experienced hands and technology. Welcome to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Arkansas Children's Hospital, where healing is in our nature.
Our 100-bed NICU is equipped and staffed to deliver a full range of care to critically ill neonates from throughout the state. Specially trained neonatal nurses are available for one-on-one patient care when needed. Neonatologists and pediatric house officers and neonatal nurse practitioners provide coverage to the unit, including 24-hour in-house staff neonatology coverage and Arkansas' only complete
head cooling experience. Subspecialists from all the pediatric disciplines are available for consultation 24 hours a day.
We're here not only to care for your baby, but also you and your family as well. If your child is being admitted to the Arkansas Children's Hospital Neonatal Intensive Care Unit,
