Neonatal Intensive Care
At Swedish, you'll also have the peace of mind that comes with knowing your baby has instant access to the largest neonatal program in the state — just in case. Swedish's Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is one of a handful of Level III nurseries in the region. Equipped with state-of-the-art technology, the Swedish NICU is prepared to care for the most premature or sick newborns.
But it’s more than special incubators and respiratory monitors that sets Swedish apart. It’s experience. Every year, Swedish cares for more than 900 premature or sick newborns, giving parents the assurance that their babies’ lives are in the hands of experts who’ve encountered virtually every situation imaginable.
Precision Teamwork at its Best
At Swedish, neonatologists — doctors specially trained to take care of high-risk newborns — are in the hospital around the clock. They are supported by an exceptional and highly skilled team of nurses, consulting physicians, clinical nutrition specialists, pharmacists, physical therapists and respiratory therapists. In addition, our pediatric surgery program can handle most of the surgical procedures an infant might need.
That's why, when there's risk of a serious medical problem, women from all over the Northwest — even Alaska — often transfer to Swedish. If your baby needs advanced care, it's reassuring to know it's instantly available, and that while you're recovering, you'll be close to your baby.
