Memorial Medical Center's neonatology services offer care to improve the chance of survival for babies born ill or prematurely and to improve their developmental outcomes. Through this service, we are able to focus on creating an environment for a critically ill newborn that meets their physiological, emotional, and developmental needs.
The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Memorial provides an advanced level of care for premature or sick babies. Our NICU offers a supportive, healing, and compassionate environment to help our infant patients and their families achieve the best possible outcomes. Memorial’s NICU offers the highest level of care for your newborn in Southern New Mexico.
The NICU is staffed by Board Certified Neonatologists and Certified Neonatal Nurse Practitioners, a team of experienced neonatal nurses and respiratory therapists.
We have a Neonatal Transport Team. When a baby is born in a hospital outside of Las Cruces and requires a higher level of care, we can travel to them with an ambulance that has neonatal equipment including an isolette and ventilator. A specially trained team of nurses and respiratory therapists will provide care during the transport and in the NICU.
