About Us

Baby at Doernbecher ©OHSU

Our 46-bed Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is designed with your child and your family in mind.

Each year, we care for hundreds of newborns and babies from throughout the Northwest. We are located adjacent to the mother baby unit at OHSU so that our babies are cared for in close proximity to their where their mothers may be recovering.

Our Doernbecher pediatric intensive care specialists are committed to providing your child the highest quality care, in a family-centered environment. We understand that your baby’s illness is a challenging and sometimes frightening experience for you, and we do everything we can to support you and your family while your baby is in our care.

We offer a full range of services including expert support for your baby’s medical, developmental and emotional needs. 

This includes highly specialized care for your critically ill newborn or premature infant needing special medical treatment or surgery. We also care for your baby when they are not seriously ill but still need some extra observation or specialized nursing care.
