Why choose Ochsner Health for your neonatology care?
Babies born prematurely or with serious problems need specialized care and support for a successful start to life outside the womb. That’s exactly what they receive at Ochsner. We are dedicated to providing outstanding, personalized neonatology care to infants using a multidisciplinary approach that promotes open discussion between all members of the team and encourages parents to participate in their child’s care.
Neonatal care begins from the moment your baby enters the world. Highly skilled teams in our Level 2, 3 and 4 neonatal intensive care units (NICUs) use the latest treatments and technology to deliver exceptional neonatal-perinatal medicine care. Ochsner Baptist Women’s Pavilion offers the only Level 4 NICU — the highest designation awarded by the state of Louisiana — within a birthing hospital in the state. Our team of board-certified neonatologists and experienced neonatal nurse practitioners staff this 54-bed NICU, which features private rooms. You can rest assured your baby will receive the care needed to thrive through Ochsner.
