Level III NICU

Specialized Care For Our Smallest Patients

The award-winning, 24 bed Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Timpanogos Regional Hospital provides specialized care for the smallest patients, from premature infants to sick "term" newborns. As a Level III NICU, we have the capacity to care for almost every level of critical babies, even those as young as 24 weeks gestation and as small as 1 pound.

Our medical team is led by board-certified Neonatology physicians with many additional years of sub-specialty training in the care of newborns arriving too early or with medical complications. Should your newborn need specialized care, our neonatology team is available 24 hours a day. They are assisted by neonatal nurse practitioners, an experienced nursing staff, pharmacists, and dieticians dedicated to the physical and developmental needs of babies.
