Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)
Sanford Health has a Level 3B NICU which means we care for infants less than 28 weeks (seven months) gestation and less than 1000 grams (three pounds).
Thank you for your cooperation. We realize that this period may be a difficult time for you and your family. Our staff will strive to help you in any way we can.
Sanford Birth Center has designated a specific number of rooms on the floor that are available to be used as courtesy rooms for our parents who have babies in the NICU.Priority will be given to parents:
A social worker will be working with you to assist you with problems and/or concerns you may have. The social worker will be able to assist you with financial aid, sleeping accommodations, developmental programs and follow-up care.
A member of the clergy is always available to you during your childs hospitalization. Please contact your babys nurse if you would like one to visit.
Please feel free to call and ask about your baby whenever you wish. Our number is (701) 323-6580 or (800) 732-7126. Information about your baby will only be given to you.
Graduates of the NICU are often at risk for delays in development. The NICU follow-up clinic is designed to monitor your infant's development and to provide you, the parent, with instruction and education.
Your infant is assessed jointly by physical, occupational and speech therapists. Areas assess include gross motor skills, fine motor skills, feeding, sensory processing, pre-language skills and social/interaction skills. The parent(s) are present during the visits so it is also an opportunity for you to receive instructions and additional education related to your infant's development and risks. Learn more about our pediatric therapy services.
Referrals for the NICU clinic are made by the neonatologist or primary doctor when your infant is discharged from the NICU. The clinic coordinator arranges the follow-up appointment with the referring doctor and pediatric therapists.
The results and recommendations are discussed with the parent(s) and are provided to the referring doctor.
For more information, call (701) 323-6580.
