Phoenix Children’s is building a new 44,000ft² neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) at its Thomas Campus in Arizona, US.

It is said to be the state’s only American Academy of Paediatrics-designated Level IV NICU, to provide medical care for complex neonatal conditions.

Expected to open next year, the new NICU will include 48 spacious private rooms, each with a crib, window, and private bathroom.

It will also feature a multi-purpose room for physical and occupational therapy, a washer, dryer, refrigerator and sink for use of the families of patients, a family lounge and quiet areas.

Phoenix Children’s division chief and the Bill and Cathy Hudson Endowed Chair in Neonatology Gregory C Martin said: “Few things are more important than high-quality medical care for newborn babies, especially when those babies are sick.

“We considered every detail when designing the new NICU, like large, comfortable patient rooms with private bathrooms for parents and caregivers, cribs outfitted for emergency procedures and a floor plan that ensures quick access for our medical teams.

“These are extremely important considerations for vulnerable new-borns whose medical status can change quickly.”

Additionally, a Level IIIB NICU is coming up at Phoenix Children’s Hospital — East Valley in Gilbert when the hospital launches.

Dr Martin said: “Many babies face extremely complex medical issues at birth and in their first few months.

“Our goal is to give them the best possible start in life, and that means ensuring access to highly specialised care in infancy, toddlerhood and throughout childhood and adolescence.”
