Can anyone tell me how many level IV NICU's we have nationwide?

I have tried researching on google but can't find any lists. The one's off the top of my head are seattle children's, primary children's, texas children's, kosair ky.

Are they only to be found at children's hospitals? How many are there?

Most (if not all) children's hospitals have level IV NICUs. There are some non-children's hospitals that also have Level IV NICUs and are usually associated with a university. There are some outside of both of these realms, but I don't know of any comprehensive list.

Albany Med in NY and I believe Connecticut Children's Medical Center in Hartford, Ct is as well.

We have at least two in Denver - UCH and Children's Colorado. Children's is the only hospital in the region that does head-cooling. They also do things like fetal surgery, exit procedures, PUBS/transfusion. All the neonatal specialists work between both hospitals (they're located on the same campus and are closely affiliated). I think Presbyterian-St. Luke's in Denver might also be a level IV.

You may have to do a state by state search. Also, keep I mind that some may still be labeled as Level 3 with a subcategory of B C D. We have a university hospital here that meets all the criteria for level 4 but call themselves level 3. It is a bit controversial at times. Look at the criteria for a level 4, and then what the NICUs offer, that will help but it is a daunting process.

I'm pretty sure Sacred Heart Medical Center in Spokane, WA just got upgraded to level IV.

I am confused about the level 3 vs. level 4 NICU classifications. Can somebody please explain the differences to me? The NICU I just started working at is a level 3 NICU. Neonates that need it get surgery at our hospital, which I thought was the difference between a level 3 and level 4 NICU? We do not have ECMO though.

Thank you in advance!
