Newborn children who require special medical attention, including premature newborns or infants with serious illnesses, are often admitted to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit or NICU.

NICUs provide specialized care using state-of-the-art treatments and technology.
The Cook County Health NICU team provides a multidisciplinary approach and incorporates expertise from a full spectrum of pediatric, nursing, occupational therapy, physical therapy, social work and nutritional specialties. Throughout your time in the NICU, our team works closely with your family and infant to promote bonding and provide education, training and support for a smooth transition going home.
