Neonatal ICU at Methodist Women's Hospital

If your baby requires neonatal intensive care, a highly specialized team is here to care for your precious baby.

Should your baby need additional care, we offer a high-level 51-bed Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) staffed by a highly specialized neonatal team. The NICU is designated a Level III unit - the highest level of care in west Omaha.

The NICU environment

The NICU is designed specially for the care, growth and development of premature babies and babies needing intensive care. This special environment offers lighting and sound levels for optimal newborn development. Learn about the design of the NICU rooms.

HeRO monitoring system

Methodist Women's Hospital is the only hospital with the state-of-the-art HeRO Monitoring System in all the NICU rooms. This innovative tool tracks the beat-to-beat variability of baby’s heart, giving advanced warning of infection, illness or other distress—before any symptoms appear. Studies show that HeRO can reduce infant mortality by more than 20 percent. Research shows one life was saved for every 48 monitored.
