The Division of Neonatology at the University of Illinois at Chicago is committed to the academic missions of education, research, and patient care. Our full time faculty and staff participate in clinical care, teaching, and research. The neonatal service at the University Of Illinois Hospital & Health Sciences System is a tertiary care center and serves as the Regional Center of Excellence for neonatal care. We offer both primary and specialized care to a large high-risk in-born population as well as out-born babies who are transported in from our immediate community.
As a state designated Perinatal Center, our services include a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit for premature newborns and infants with special health needs. Because of exceptional perinatal services and our top-notch nursing care, our Center serves as a referral destination for critically ill newborns from other hospitals in Illinois. Our Developmental Follow-Up Clinic provides continued evaluation for infants who have been discharged from an intensive or special care nursery.
The clinical program at the University Of Illinois Hospital & Health Sciences System includes a 30 bed neonatal intensive care unit, a 24 bed Intermediate Care nursery and the normal mother-newborn nursery. We also have a highly skilled transport team available for ground transport.
