NICU Opens to Tiny Patients

 

Henry Mayo's first-ever neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) is now open and serving families in the Santa Clarita Valley.

The new, 4,400-square-foot Level II Kim and Steven Ullman NICU includes 11 infant beds.  All of the NICU rooms include special neonatal beds, space for families and state-of-the-art monitoring systems. 
 


 

The NICU is led by a board certified neonatologist and a team of nationally certified nurses who oversee the specialized care and monitoring of our tiny patients.  These experts, in collaboration with respiratory care specialists, social workers, pharmacists and occupational therapists, provide a full continuum of care and support for newborns and their parents. 
 


 

The completion of the state-of-the-art facility, funded in part by a generous donation from Kim and Steven Ullman, is an important part of the hospital's expansion plan as we grow to serve our community. 
 


 

The new unit solidifies Santa Clarita as a destination of choice for young families and strengthens our entire community by keeping mothers, fathers and their newborns together at a most critical time.
