Newborn Intensive Care

The UnityPoint Health – Meriter Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is the very best place for premature and sick infants to receive the advanced care they need.

Each year, as a premier regional center for high-risk neonatal care, more than 600 tiny patients and their loves ones turn to the Meriter NICU for life-saving care, from those born as early as 23 weeks to full-term babies requiring innovative, life-saving treatment when born.

The Difference we Make Together

We all share one vision: to ensure every sick or premature baby from across our region has access to the very best care, 365 days a year.

Your gift will help NICU families during one of the most stressful times in their lives. By ensuring families have the extra support they need, they can focus on what matters most: bonding and connecting with their babies.

Your support will also help Meriter's NICU remain at the forefront of neonatal medicine, advancing the next generation of technologies, innovative research and continuing education and training.
