Newborn Complications We Treat

Although most newborns in the U.S. are born healthy and without complications, many factors before, during or after delivery can cause health complications that require specialty care. At University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital, we have the expertise, state-of-the-art equipment and healing environment to care for newborns with the following complications:

A Healing Environment for Newborn Patients

Newborns are accustomed to their mother’s womb, which is warm, dark and quiet. But hospitals can be noisy and bright places full of activity. At UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital, we’ve used proven science to mimic the womb and promote a healing environment for newborns by minimizing sounds, alarms, lights and other disruptions in our Level IV neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), Transitional Care Center and other newborn spaces.

Lifelong Follow-up Care

The care infants receive as newborns can impact the rest of their lives. Some newborns are able to leave UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital without ever having to return, while others develop chronic conditions that require ongoing care.

For more than five decades, neonatal experts specialists at UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital have been studying the effects of newborn care, following our patients as they develop. We then apply this knowledge to enhance how we care for and treat our littlest patients.
