Neonatal Special Care Unit
Why Would My Baby Need the NSCU?
About 12% of all babies in the U.S. are born prematurely. And while that's not a majority, it's a good enough reason to give birth in a hospital with all the specialized services and care your baby may need.
Babies born prematurely may be sent to the neonatal special care unit (NSCU) located at our campuses located at Trinity Moline and Trinity Bettendorf, or if they have difficulties during delivery or show signs of a problem in their first days of life. The Neonatal Special Care Unit offers equipment designed specifically for infants with staff specially trained in newborn care and conditions. UnityPoint Health - Trinity staffs a level II NSCU with two neonatologists and two neonatology nurse practitioners on call 24/7 for the life and health of your baby.
Trinity knows some of our littlest patients can need the biggest care. Trinity NSCU offers 11 rooms with the most technologically advanced equipment. Larger rooms also are available to accommodate twins and triplets.
