Children's - Minneapolis Neonatal Intensive Care Unit

The Children’s Minneapolis’s neonatal program provides 76 private rooms for neonatal care ranging from Level II to Level IV.  

ECMO (Extra Corporeal Membranous Oxygenation) services and congenital heart surgeries are also available.  Children’s ECMO program is the largest in Minnesota, with neonatal and respiratory volumes growing annually.

Nurse-to-patient ratio in the neonatal centers is presently one to one or one to two for the care of critically ill patients.  In addition, a multidisciplinary team of health care professionals including social workers, chaplains, occupational and physical therapists, pharmacists, and respiratory therapists are available at both Children’s campuses.
