Not all NICUs are created equal, and it’s important to know the difference when you are choosing where to have your baby. Huntington Hospital offers beyond-advanced care in our level III B NICU for babies born prematurely or with medical problems. In fact, our NICU provides the highest level of neonatal intensive care available in the San Gabriel Valley.
We have in-house neonatologists available 24 hours a day with support teams that include neonatology surgeons, physicians and nurses; specially trained respiratory therapists; pediatric pharmacists; occupational therapists; dietitians and transport teams.
For more information about the NICU, or to arrange for a transport, please call (626) 397-8524.
We are the only hospital in the San Gabriel Valley to offer many of the advanced neonatal care techniques that are responsible for saving dozens of young lives every year. Our NICU offers state-of-the-art diagnostic and surgical services.
Therapeutic Induced Hypothermia (Total Body Cooling)
Cooling is a treatment that may prevent or minimize long-term consequences of brain injury in newborns.
Nitric Oxide Treatment
Nitric oxide treatment is a non-invasive method of treating respiratory and cardiopulmonary disorders in infants.
Small Baby Unit
Our small baby unit provides specialized care for our tiniest patients under 32 weeks and 1500 grams.
Nutrition & Feeding Program
We want our patients to have the best care so we provide the option of milk from a licensed donor milk bank for qualified candidates. For babies born under 32 weeks gestation, less than 1500 grams, or those who have suffered a bowel injury, donor milk may be given (with parental conset) until the mother’s own milk supply is the right amount to feed her baby until he/she reaches 32 weeks gestation. Studies have shown that breast milk offers many benefits such as improved digestion, help with long-term development, and has active growth and changing hormones.
High Risk Infant Clinic
For NICU graduates who require follow-up care after discharge, a team of skilled practitioners from our high-risk infant follow-up clinic are on-hand to assist families with additional services.
