Integrated Transitional Care Area

The NICU at Miller Children’s & Women's has an Integrated Transitional Care Area for newborns that need the most attention and require extended care. The Integrated Transitional Care Area within the NICU ensures that patients with a severe diagnosis or pending procedures and surgeries receive special attention and care.

The care team assigned to each patient stays with him or her throughout their stay, which establishes a much-needed consistency of care for families during treatment. Not limited to just NICU nurses and physicians, the Integrated Transitional Care Area care teams utilize a variety of professional care givers who work together with a patient’s family to plan for each baby’s unique case. These care teams often include occupational therapists, physical therapists, dietitians, palliative care specialists, case managers, social workers, family educators, pharmacists and any other specialized care team members that may be needed.
