A Big Future For Our Smallest Patients

At Brenner Children’s Hospital, the Dale & Karen Sisel Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is central to our mission.

We offer our community and our region the finest neonatologists, pediatric surgeons, neonatal nurse practitioners, nurses and pediatric specialists equipped with state-of-the-art technology and equipment. They care for our tiniest, most vulnerable patients—giving them the best chance of surviving and thriving throughout their lives.

We are raising $25 million to build and support the new Dale & Karen Sisel NICU with 51 private patient rooms—to give every infant and family who comes through our NICU the best chance for the best life possible.
