Specialized Care for Newborns

Call for an Appointment

Newborns who require specialized care benefit from the expertise of the Duke neonatologists and other medical professionals who staff the Duke Health nurseries.

The Special Care Nursery at Duke Regional Hospital cares for infants born prematurely as well as babies born with common neonatal conditions such as breathing problems or suspected infections.

Infants with complex problems are cared for in Duke University Hospital’s Level IV Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). The Level IV designation indicates we provide the highest level of care for critically ill infants.

We value you and your family as our partners. We strive to answer all your questions, keep you informed, and welcome your input regarding your child’s condition and treatments.
