Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)
In the event your baby is born prematurely or develops complications after birth, a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is available.
In Partnership with Seattle Children's
Overlake and Seattle Children's have partnered to make sure your new baby receives the very best care available on the Eastside. Our NICU is staffed by specially trained expert neonatal physicians and neonatal nurse practitioners (NNPs) from Seattle Children's around the clock.
- Available every day around the clock: The Seattle Children's neonatology team members are ready 24/7 should your newborn need their expert care.
- Hospital care: Neonatalogists and NNPs take care of your infant if they need to stay in the NICU due to prematurity, low birth weight, illness or other special needs.
- Referrals to pediatric experts: Our team can coordinate your baby's care if they need to be seen by specialists at Seattle Children's.
While sophisticated technology is put to work in the care of these special infants, our family-centered approach encourages collaboration between parents and staff throughout baby’s hospital stay. Family support is an integral part of baby’s recovery. A daybed and recliner are available at baby’s bedside to keep you close.
Enhancing Women's & Infants' Services
