Most babies are born without complications, but sometimes, an infant needs extra assistance after birth. Mountain View Hospital is proud to offer the special care these newborns and their families need in our Level III NICU.
We can care for babies born as early as 25 weeks in our NICU. Our team of highly trained neonatologists, registered nurses, respiratory therapists, pharmacists, lactation specialists, and social workers work closely with parents to provide the best outcomes for your baby. Our extensive training allows us to deliver the best care to our community's most vulnerable patients.
Care for You and Your Baby
Our NICU offers the most advanced technology in the region. We can help infants overcome a variety of challenges, including:
- Infants born prematurely (as early as 25 weeks)
- Twins, triplets and other multiples
- Infants who are struggling with the transition to extrauterine life
- Feeding difficulties
- Blood sugar instability
- Breathing problems
- Temperature instability
We intentionally designed our NICU to keep families and babies together. Babies who need to spend time in the NICU will have their own space, so that families can stay connected. Parents are encouraged to spend as much time with their little one as possible. Maintaining a family-centered model of care has been shown to reduce stress for babies and improve their short-term and long-term health outcomes. We want you to be the experts in taking care of your baby when they are ready to go home.
We know having a baby in the NICU can be a challenging experience. Our team is here to provide you comfort and support. While your baby's needs are your top priority, we've done our best to take your needs into account as well. Our NICU is set up with unique features to make your life a little easier:
- 24/7 NICU access for parents
- Meals for parents during their child’s entire NICU stay
- Refrigerators for breast milk
- Bedside milk warmers
- Hospital grade breast pumps
- Fully stocked snack area
No matter what happens during your delivery or pregnancy, the team at Mountain View Hospital is here for you.
Been there twice with my wife for our second and third sons; the first was complication free and the nurses/doctors/staff were all amazing; second ended up with quite a scary emergency, but again - everyone handled it so well. The atmosphere is amazing, genuinely the only truly good experience I've had at a hospital and they duplicated it. Highly recommend the Birthing Center at Mountain View.Matthew

Mountain View Hospital's NICU was built using the latest technology available. The equipment, created by Dräger, takes babies’ every need into account. Machines are designed to regulate temperature for optimal health, provide the perfect lighting to avoid overstimulation and reduce noise to protect the baby's highly sensitive ears. We have carefully considered every detail to make sure babies get the best start possible.
Take A Tour
We have special visiting requirements to make sure our youngest patients stay healthy and safe. A banded parent must accompany all NICU visitors. An additional four people can be added a NICU baby’s support circle, at the parent’s discretion, to visit and participate in the child’s care without parents being present. Guests are encouraged to come between 6 a.m. to 9 p.m.
During flu and cold season, we need to take extra care to keep our NICU babies healthy. All visitors will be required to go through a brief health screening before they are welcomed into the NICU. We also require visitors to be at least 18 years old. Outside of cold and flu season, sibling accommodations can be discussed on a case-by-case basis.
