Find Comfort Knowing Your Baby is in Special Hands


     Neonatology, the study of newborn babies and their special problems, is one of the newest and fastest growing medical sciences. Babies who once would never have taken a first breath now survive and thrive because of the medical staff and medical expertise available to them at Northwest Health’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).


     At the NICU, trained professionals such as nurses, social workers and respiratory, physical, occupational and speech therapists support the medical staff to provide the extra attention your baby needs.


Designed with the Needs of Your Baby in Mind


         “The NICU doctors and staff will always have a special place in our hearts” said Blake Cosper, father of Katie Cosper, who was so tiny at birth that her father’s wedding band fit around her knee. She weighed 1 pound 14 ounces. Today she is healthy and one of more than 1,000 former NICU patients from the greater region: Northwest Arkansas, Northeast Oklahoma and Southwest Missouri.
