Excellent Care for Babies and Their Families in the St. Luke’s NICUs

Reproductive medicine, high-risk pregnancies and multiple births require high quality medical care enhanced with the latest technology. The Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICU) at St. Luke’s Allentown Campus, St. Luke’s University Hospital – Bethlehem and St. Luke’s Anderson Campus are designed to provide a high level of care for babies and their families. The Level III NICU at St. Luke’s Anderson Campus and St. Luke’s University Hospital-Bethlehem and the Level II NICU at St. Luke's Allentown Campus are leading facilities for highly specialized care for multiple births, premature babies and full-term babies with medical problems.

St. Luke’s NICUs are certified to provide the highest level of care to newborns and premature babies requiring intensive care and are recognized in the "Vermont Oxford Network," a national network of NICUs formed to evaluate quality and outcomes of neonatal practices.

Staffed by fellowship-trained, board-certified neonatologists, neonatal nurse practitioners and a team of specially trained nurses, lactation consultants, occupational and physical therapists, the NICU offers the very latest in technology and developmental techniques. St. Luke’s NICUs are equipped to perform CT scans, echocardiograms, EKGs, EEGs and ultrasound.

Our practice is to encourage parental involvement in all aspects of care. The NICUs offer a family waiting room for visitors, a night watch room for parents to spend a night with their baby before going home and a private place to breast-feed or pump your milk. Care is provided by a skilled team of caregivers. Special lighting and noise control create an environment that is sensitive to the babies. Tours of the NICU are available to those who anticipate a high-risk delivery.
