Neonatal Intensive Care Unit
Most babies are born healthy, but sometimes a newborn starts life with special needs. To care for these babies, Children's Hospital Central California and Central Valley General Hospital offer Kings County's only Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Highly trained registered nurses and respiratory therapists staff this unit, which offers the latest technological equipment available for newborns. The NICU at Central Valley General Hospital gives families the security of knowing their babies will receive the care they need.
