Neonatalogy

In neonatology, it's the little things that matter. That's why our nationally recognized Level IV NICU provides the highest level of care available for our tiny patients. Cook Children's is one of only a handful of NICUs nationwide to provide single patient rooms. These individual rooms enable us to provide the highly specialized intensive care services and attention that medically fragile babies need. All of these advantages plus our advanced technology, top doctors and one-of-a-kind developmental program, means we give every baby we treat the biggest chance possible for a happy, healthy childhood.
