Children's Nebraska

The NICU at Children’s Nebraska is a 40-bed combined medical-surgical unit. There are approximately 500 admissions per year and has an average daily census of 31 patients. Almost all infants admitted are transferred to the Children's Nebraska's NICU from nurseries across the state of Nebraska and surrounding regions of Iowa, South Dakota and Kansas due to complex cardiac, genetic, or multi-organ disease, surgical treatment or extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO). Our neonatologists are experts in managing critically ill infants; our fellows quickly become familiar with state-of-the art therapies including inhaled Nitric Oxide (iNO), ECMO, and induced Whole Body Hypothermia.
