Little Miracles in the NICU
Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Scottsdale Healthcare Shea Medical Center The Northeast Valley's most critically ill newborns and mothers-to-be with high-risk pregnancies can now receive care closer to home, at Scottsdale Healthcare Shea Medical Center. Level III designation means that Scottsdale Healthcare Shea Medical Center's NICU can now provide the most advanced care for all newborns of any gestational age and offer care for mothers with high-risk pregnancies. (Our NICU has already cared for babies as small as 460 grams, 25 weeks gestation and as young as 24 weeks gestation and weighing 700 grams.) The 24-bed Level III NICU maintains state-of-the-art equipment and is staffed by neonatologists (physicians who take care of premature babies or sick infants), neonatal nurse practitioners, specially trained nurses and respiratory professionals who provide 24-hour in-hospital coverage for infants and families who require advanced care.
