Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)
The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Children’s Hospital Colorado is located on the 4th floor of the main hospital. Take the main elevators to level 4 and turn right. The state-of-the-art facility has 74 critical care beds for infants up to 3 months old. Our NICU is rated Level IIIC, which is the highest distinction granted by the American Academy of Pediatrics.
Because our hospital and providers focus on family-centered care, the NICU has been recently remodeled to care for both babies and their families. A family lounge with laundry facilities and a kitchen is located on the unit. Parents participate in daily rounds with the medical team and are considered a vital part of each baby’s care team.
