Neonatal Intensive Care Unit

Delivering hope and miracles


Since 1941, the Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at HSHS St. John's Children's Hospital has provided the highest level of care for premature or seriously ill babies across south-central Illinois. With the knowledge and resources available, we focus on not only helping babies survive despite their seemingly insurmountable odds, but also thrive.

Though the NICU constructed to be one of the most advanced healing environments in the nation, the way we now approach care of our tiniest patients has evolved. To provide our NICU patients with the best care possible, an expansive renovation of the NICU is needed.



 With your help, we will continue our leadership position as NICU specialists to give families hope.
