Neonatal Intensive Care Unit

​Location of Care

The neonatal intensive care unit at The Children's Hospital provides the highest level of care for your baby and is Oklahoma's premier NICU, acting as a regional referral center for babies from across the state and region.

After having a baby, the last thing a family wants to hear is that their newborn needs to stay in the hospital. However, extra attention and support  is often necessary for infants who are premature, need a medical procedure or require special care.  As part of The Children's Hospital, we have hundreds of specialists, current research and advanced technology right at our fingertips. If you can't be in your home, the NICU at The Children's Hospital is proud to provide a compassionate healing experience for you and your family.

Highest-level NICU in Oklahoma 

Our ​97 bed NICU was designed and constructed to provide family-friendly, developmentally appropriate care to all our babies.  You'll find recliners in all our rooms to promote bonding and to perform kangaroo care. Each room also has windows, providing natural light at each bedside, and our location on the 7th floor gives a nice view of the city.

Neonatal Village - Care for Baby Before GoingHome

The Neonatal Village is a care-by-parent area that provides private rooms for families to "room in" with their child, and practice caring for their babies in a home environment before they leave the hospital.
