Level 2 and Level 2EQ


This might sound silly, but what is the difference between a level 2 NICU and a Level 2 EQ? In my job searching I have found units with this and have been wondering what it means. I know level 2 NICU's take 28 weeks on up, vents, and some other conditions that are not critical like surgical and hearts. I also know level 2 isn't all feeder/growers. But this EQ has me curious.

Thanks. That does help. I looked up online and I guess level 2EQ is out west mainly. AZ says EQ is enhanced quality, whatever the heck that means.
