Superior care for our tiniest patients.
We know your baby's health is your greatest concern — it's ours, too. If your newborn has an unexpected health complication, you want your baby in the best possible hands. Our neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) at Sharp Chula Vista Medical Center is fully equipped with the highest-quality medical technologies and most experienced, caring staff you will find in the South Bay.
Advanced neonatal technologies.
Surrounding you with soothing colors in an inviting design, our NICU provides around-the-clock, specialized care for your newborn. Our state-of-the-art technologies, such as warming beds, a transport isolette and wireless medical charts, help our most vulnerable newborns get the precise care they need. As a Level II neonatal intensive care unit, we offer the optimal environment for your baby to heal and grow.
A full team of support.
You can take comfort in knowing that an entire team of experienced caregivers is dedicated to your newborn's well-being. In addition to our physicians and nurses, the specialists caring for your baby include neonatologists, respiratory therapists, nutritionists and rehabilitation therapists. We also have lactation consultants and social workers on hand to encourage and guide you in caring for your newborn. This means assistance with feeding and informational sessions so you know what your baby needs.
Our expert practitioners have your baby's treatment well in hand, but we don't do it alone - a vital component of your newborn's healing is you. Side by side, we work together to meet all your baby's needs. We are available daily to answer your questions, furnish advice and give you and your baby compassionate support. We offer free support groups and provide guidance on breastfeeding and caring for fragile newborns. Together we share the goal of getting your baby healed and headed home.
To ensure your availability to your baby, visiting hours are 22 hours per day (except between the hours of 6:45 and 7:45 am and between 6:45 and 7:45 pm).
We'll help find the doctor who's right for you.
