Preemies and multiple births

Studies show that premature infants who are cared for in a single room setting have better long-term outcomes.

The single room setting in Cook Children's NICU means the environment, including lighting and sound, can be individually controlled. It also enables parents to have better access and more involvement in their preemie's care. This is especially crucial with multiple birth preemies.


Because our rooms can accommodate twins, triplets, and even quadruplets, parents can have all their babies in one room. Preemies, critically ill and medically fragile babies are shown to grow better, get more oxygen and go home quicker in this setting.
