Department Description

The William H. Tooley Intensive Care Nursery (ICN) at UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital provides care for critically ill newborns and has the expertise to treat the smallest, sickest and most fragile babies. Founded in 1964, the nursery sometimes referred to as a neonatal intensive care unit or NICU was one of the first of its kind in the world. It now cares for more than 1,000 infants each year.

Our doctors, nurses and other staff are among the most experienced in caring for newborns needing surgery for heart, lung, gastrointestinal and other life-threatening conditions. Our neonatal heart program is one of the largest in the country, treating almost 200 newborns with heart disease each year. Our team is also a leader in caring for babies whose first surgeries were performed before birth by the pioneering UCSF fetal surgeons.

The 50-bed Intensive Care Nursery can be an overwhelming place, filled with high-tech equipment. It's organized into two specialized units one for premature babies and the other for complex birth defects, including heart problems and other conditions that require advanced life support. Each unit has a dedicated doctor and nursing staff and state-of-the-art equipment for the smallest infants. In addition, the ICN has a Special Care Nursery for more stable infants recovering from diseases or from premature births, as well as a High Observation Nursery for infants who are ready to go home.

We're certified by the state of California as a Regional Intensive Care Nursery, meaning we provide all levels of newborn intensive care. The nursery works with a network of 24 hospitals in Northern California to provide neonatology care, or the specialized care of sick newborns. Many critically ill newborns from throughout the West are brought here by UCSF Pediatric and Neonatal Transport Service because of our specialized facility and staff.

We are committed to excellent care and family participation as well as research to improve the care we provide.
