Welcome to the Penn State Hershey Neonatal Intensive Care Unit
All expectant parents hope that their baby will be healthy, yet sometimes problems arise that require a newborn to be hospitalized. When this happens, the baby may be admitted to the neonatal intensive care unit for treatment. The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Penn State Hershey Children's Hospital provides a compelling example of the mission at work. Team members provide specialized, intensive and follow-up care for all sick and newborn infants. All patients with medical or surgical conditions are cared for in our 36 bed unit, fully equipped for all forms of life support including continuous electronic monitoring, high frequency oscillatory ventilation, heart-lung (ECMO), inhaled nitric oxide therapy, body cooling, and surgical correction of congenital defects.
