Compassionate Care for Small Miracles
The Siena Campus has a Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) that offers the highest level of neonatal treatment to our tiniest patients.
The Level III NICU at the Siena Campus is expanding
to meet the needs of our community!
The expanded NICU will be operational this summer (2013)
and will feature:
26 NICU bays (currently have 15)
a separate NICU Isolation Negative Pressure Room with whole-body cooling capabilities
a nesting suite where moms and dads can practice the parenting and caregiver skills they have learned
A lactation room the provides new mothers a comfortable, private setting where they can learn to breastfeed or pump milk
The modern, comfortable Level III NICU features the most advanced technology for monitoring sick and/or premature newborns while our caring, compassionate staff provides a full range of neonatal treatment for medically fragile infants, including:
24-hour, on-site board-certified neonatal surgeons and neonatal specialists;
- specially-trained and certified neonatal nurses and respiratory therapists;
- treatment for high-risk babies at any gestational age;
- specialized neonatal transport team; and
- adaptable, self-contained Giraffe omni-beds (versatile infant beds that provide emergency access and that convert to a protective, quiet environment which allows appropriate growth and development of the newborn).
With the Level III designation, St. Rose has the ability to treat critically ill newborns who are premature or who suffer from respiratory distress, cardiac disease, congenital anomalies, multi-system organ failure and other problems – while they stay close to their mother.
St. Rose Dominican Hospitals is the area's only Children's Miracle Network hospital.
St. Rose Dominican Hospitals partnered with Children's Miracle Network in January 2005. Since then, 100 percent of every dollar raised in southern Nevada goes to St. Rose Dominican Hospitals' NICU and Pediatric Centers to provide equipment, charity care, and health education for children.

Once a newborn no longer needs the highest level of care, he/she will be transferred to the Level II NICU at the San Martin Campus. When this occurs, it's a cause for celebration ... your baby is getting stronger and healthier. To learn more about how the transition process works, click below.
