Transitional Care Unit
Our Transitional Care Unit (TCU) is available for babies who might need
a little extra care as they transition after a delivery. Our neonatologist
partners from CHOC Children's are available for any needs requiring
a higher level of attention during this time.
Our TCU provides specialty care for:
- Babies who require close observation immediately following delivery because
they have respiratory difficulty, temperature instability, etc.
- Babies who require medical treatments such as phototherapy beyond mother’s
admission, short term antibiotic therapy or respiratory support.
- Babies whose mothers require a higher level of care on another unit. (e.g.,
Intensive Care Unit or Medical Telemetry Unit.)
