(WEST JORDAN – September 17, 2019) Jordan Valley Medical Center, a member of the Steward Health Care family, is proud to announce the 10-year celebration of the opening of our Neonatal Intensive Care (NICU) Unit. This celebration will be held on October 12, 2019, and will be a reunion for past NICU patients, family and staff. Jordan Valley Medical Center has served 6175 patients over the past decade.

“We are excited to host our past babies and their families, said Michele Binks, Director of NICU. “One of the most rewarding aspects of our job is being able to see babies who come to us sick and then leave healthy and happy with their family. Taking care of these babies is more than a job for us, it is our passion. ”
Jordan Valley Medical Center’s NICU opened in October 2009 and remains the only Level III NICU on the West side of the Salt Lake Valley. The unit is focused on providing specialized care for premature and critically ill babies. The Level III NICU is staffed by board-certified neonatologists and physicians who specialize in premature infant care. Along with neonatologists, the unit is staffed 24/7 with neonatal registered nurses and respiratory therapists, who provide immediate care to their smallest patients. 

The NICU was designed to provide the best care to patients while maintaining a family centered environment. The unit is comprised of 11 semi-private patient rooms that provide families privacy during their stay, and are connected by sliding doors for easy access by staff. The rooms are equipped with advanced technologies to offer specialized care and quick responses from staff.  Parents can be assured their baby is getting the individualized care they need. 

The 10 year celebration will be held October 12, 2019 from 11:00 A.M. – 1:00 P.M. and will include a cake cutting by the Hospital President, Jon Butterfield. There will be games, activities, raffle prizes, and photos for those in attendance. All NICU patients and their families are invited to attend. To RSVP for this event please visit
