Neonatology Overview for Families

UW Medicine is proud to offer the two highest levels of care (levels III and IV) in our NICUs. This means our hospitals are able to care for even the tiniest and most critically ill newborns, giving worried parents peace of mind. Our NICUs offer rooms with parent sleep space, so families can stay close to their baby, family lounges, parent mentor and sibling programs, and physical therapy and speech services for babies who need them. The providers in the NICU also work in partnership with specialists at Seattle Children’s Hospital to care for newborns with more complicated medical needs.
