For babies born prematurely or with medical problems, we offer a level III neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) that provides the highest level of neonatal intensive care available in the San Gabriel Valley. Our NICU has in-house neonatologists available around the clock with support teams that include specially trained respiratory therapists, neonatology nurses, pediatric pharmacists, occupational therapists, and dietitians.
Watch the below video to learn about one family’s experience at our NICU.
A few of the services our NICU provides include:
Advanced neonatal care
We are the only hospital in the San Gabriel Valley to offer many of the advanced neonatal care techniques that are responsible for saving dozens of young lives every year. Our NICU offers state-of-the-art diagnostic and surgical services.
Therapeutic induced hypothermia (total body cooling)

Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) is a life-saving surgical treatment for pulmonary hypertension or respiratory failure in infants. ECMO pumps blood out of the body and through an artificial lung to receive oxygen, remove carbon dioxide and support the work of the lungs.
Nitric oxide (NO) treatment
Nitric oxide (NO) treatment is a non-invasive method of treating respiratory and cardiopulmonary disorders in infants.
If the baby is coming from a distant location, helicopter transfer may be arranged. And whether the infant is transported by ambulance or helicopter, a neonatology team will be on hand to provide medical support during the journey.
High-risk infant follow-up clinic
For NICU graduates who require follow-up care after discharge, a team of skilled practitioners from our high-risk infant follow-up clinic are on-hand to assist families with additional services.
These services are available to babies who graduate from Huntington Hospital as well as other NICU facilities.
