Neonatal Intensive Care Unit

Delivering hope and miracles

More than 700 "miracle babies" a year benefit from the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at HSHS St. John's Children's Hospital. As the only Level III NICU in the area, serving 39 counties across an approximate 80-mile radius, this is a critical medical resource to protect the healthy recovery and development of babies throughout south-central Illinois.

The expanded and updated NICU will provide single family patient rooms for the first time in St. John’s 78-year history of caring for premature and critically-ill infants. Research shows si ngle family rooms provide the peace, quiet and comfort families and babies need, resulting in even better outcomes.

Donor support is essential to bringing the new NICU plans to life. One hundred percent of your donation goes directly to the new NICU with no administrative overhead costs, and you’ll be investing in the survival, health and well-being of local babies.

You, along with your family, friends and neighbors have the opportunity to make a big impact. Call (217) 814-5177 to learn more about the NICU Imagine Tomorrow Fundraising Campaign.
