About the Renée Schine Crown NICU at Rush University Medical Center

  • Highest level of care: The Renée Schine Crown Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is a level III, the highest level of care for babies in need. Advanced technology and expert providers, including neonatologists and specially-trained NICU nurses, monitor and treat your baby 24 hours a day.
  • Next door to labor and delivery: Located within our Family Birth Center, our NICU is next door to our delivery and operating rooms. When seconds matter most, your baby can receive immediate care from our team of experts. Our postpartum recovery rooms are also nearby so you can conveniently visit your baby at any time.
  • Designed with family in mind: Our NICU offers the space and support your family needs to bond with your baby, including a private room and calm environment. As a March of Dimes NICU Family Support site, we also provide special educational resources and keepsakes during your stay with us.
  • Supporting breastfeeding: Research shows the benefits of breast milk to help small and vulnerable babies grow. At Rush University Medical Center, our nursing staff and lactation consultants will assist you with breastfeeding, including pumping so you can provide breast milk for your baby until they are strong enough to latch.
