Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) in Southwest Las Vegas
The NICU at Southern Hills Hospital & Medical Center is where our neonatologists and neonatal nurses provide expert care for premature newborns or infants who require a higher level of care than is available in a traditional newborn nursery. Our NICU staff is committed to providing top-quality care for newborns and working closely with parents to keep them involved and informed in their child's care.
Bringing a child into the world is a joyous event, but sometimes unforeseen situations occur. Because we have an on-site Level III NICU, all babies born in our hospital have access to neonatal intensive care if needed. During a stay in the NICU, newborns are monitored 24/7 by neonatologists trained in caring for sick and premature infants.

Southern Hills Hospital is excited to offer nitrous oxide as a new pain management option for moms. Nitrous oxide works quicker than an epidural and without many of the side effects. Nitrous oxide also gives laboring moms control of their pain management. It is administered through a mask, so moms can choose when to put the mask on and when to take it off. Nitrous oxide has also been showing to create a sense of pleasure and relaxation while decreasing anxiety.
Our 24/7 laborist program
Southern Hills Hospital offers a 24/7 laborist program. This ensures qualified OB/GYN physicians are at the hospital 24/7, providing laboring moms specialized care whenever they need it. Should any emergencies arise, our laborists will be on the scene to care for you and your baby and assist your physician once they arrive. Our laborist program is supported by Women’s Health Associates of Southern Nevada (WHASN).

At Southern Hills Hospital we are here for you before, during, and after baby is born. Before little one arrives we’re inviting the community to our free prenatal yoga classes. This class is taught by the owner of Prenatal Yoga Las Vegas, Angela. Angela has specialized training in prenatal yoga, fertility yoga and even yoga that focuses on the pelvic floor.
While you can do the class throughout your entire pregnancy we noticed most moms like to start in the second trimester. Anyone from the community is allowed to attend. Please bring your own yoga mat.
