NICU at Sharp
Superior care for our tiniest patients
If your baby is born prematurely or with complications, there is no better place for your newborn to grow, heal and receive high-quality medical care than at the neonatal intensive care units (NICUs) at Sharp Chula Vista Center for Women & Newborns, Sharp Grossmont Hospital for Women & Newborns and Sharp Mary Birch Hospital for Women & Newborns.
How to have your baby at Sharp
Only the best care for you and your baby
Caring for a NICU baby takes more than a team of compassionate clinicians ― it also takes you. That's why we involve family every step of the way. Visiting hours are 22 hours per day, ensuring you'll be there when you need to be. And we encourage parents to participate in kangaroo care ― a form of skin-to-skin contact that encourages bonding and interaction, and which has shown to promote an early release for premature infants.
We know what your little one needs. We are doctors, nurses, lactation specialists, nutritionists, physical therapists and respiratory care practitioners. And we're all working together to help your baby heal.

Our world-class NICUs are conveniently located in Sharp hospitals across San Diego County.
