Caring for Kids, close to home.

Since 1875, HSHS St. John’s Hospital has provided a unique brand of care to the people of Illinois. 

Through our deep commitment to teaching we’ve shared knowledge and experience across generations. We’ve consistently brought the latest medical advances to the people and communities we serve. Learned the value of creativity and collaboration with our colleagues and physician partners. Faithfully provided care and compassion to those who have little but need much. Through times of tragedy and joy, depression and prosperity, conflict and peace we remained true to our Franciscan roots and emerged here in the twenty-first century as a leader in health care. 

Alone, none of these qualities makes us who we are. Together, they define us.

Neonatal Intensive Care Unit

The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) in HSHS St. John's Children’s Hospital provides care to nearly 600 premature babies and other seriously ill infants each year. We are a 40-bed, Level III NICU serving patients across south-central Illinois. The NICU also serves the South Central Perinatal Region.

Our expert care teams of neonatologists, nurse practitioners, RNs and respiratory therapists are specially trained to work with our smallest patients. Our team also includes pharmacists, dietitians, lactation specialists, pediatric rehabilitation therapists, social workers and Spiritual Care staff members who provide outstanding service for our patients.
