Neonatal Intensive Care Unit
With its specially trained staff and leading-edge technology, Rapides Women’s and Children’s Hospital is well-prepared to care for your newborn in our NICU. We are an experienced team of neonatal nurses – all certified in Neonatal CPR and who have completed an in-depth course in the stabilization and care of critically ill newborns.
Our neonatologists provide coverage 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Your pediatrician will work with our staff to provide direct care, consultation and attendance at deliveries of high-risk infants.
Developmental care and neonatal pain management are key to your child’s development – and we provide both. If your baby is admitted to the NICU, rest-assured that you can visit your baby 24 hours a day.
