Family-Centered NICU Care

Parents want to be with their babies, and babies thrive on time with their parents. At Phoenix Children’s, we do whatever we can to facilitate these experiences and encourage you to spend as much time as you can with your baby.

Our nurses are specially trained to provide the high level of care that babies in our NICU require. They also help you understand day-to-day changes your baby may experience or procedures they may need.

We offer weekly multidisciplinary family-centered rounds so you can meet your entire team of caregivers focused on the health of your baby. This includes doctors, nurses, nutritionists, therapists, pharmacists and social workers.
