Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU): Philosophy of Care
The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at University of Colorado Hospital is one of the top NICU’s in the region. We are committed to a multidisciplinary approach, patient- and family-centered care and high nursing staffing standards to provide the best possible medical care and outcomes for every baby in our nursery. Members of our interdisciplinary care team staff the NICU 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Dedicated care by design
Our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit was designed from the ground up to support the development of premature infants. Special lighting options, rubberized cork flooring, and sound-absorbing ceiling tiles help to minimize environmental stimulation that can impact optimal development.
The NICU is a Level 3B designated nursery that provides care for babies who:
- Are born between 23 and 42 weeks
- Weigh less than four pounds
- Need respiratory support
- Need cardio-respiratory (heart-lung) monitoring and frequent physical assessment
