  • Rainbow: a Neonatology Pioneer

    Rainbow has been at the forefront of newborn care since 1958, when Dr. Benjamin Spock began his groundbreaking child-rearing study and continued through the 60s when Rainbow insisted on allowing parents into intensive care units for fragile infants. Rainbow researchers and physicians designed the jet ventilator in 1980 and helped pioneer the extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) center in 1987. Since the 90s, Neonatologists Dr. Avroy A. Fanaroff and Dr. Richard Martin, together with Dr. Michele Walsh, wrote and edited the definitive medical text books on newborn care while many of the world's leading Neonatologists trained at Rainbow. Forty-years ago, at the advent of Neonatology, a baby weighing 2.25 lbs. had a 10 percent chance of survival. Today, for approximately 1,200 babies treated each year in the Rainbow NICU the survival rate has improved to 96% -among the highest in the nation.

    Vision 2010

    The new NICU is a major component of University Hospitals' Vision 2010 strategic plan. The NICU is named in recognition of an unprecedented $10 million gift from The Elisabeth Severance Prentiss Foundation of which Quentin and Elisabeth Alexander have been longtime trustees. Vision 2010 represents a milestone for UH as it calls for investments of more than $1 billion over five years. The plan reaffirms a strong commitment to the UH Case Medical Center campus with new facilities and the expansion of services, along with new construction and enhancements to UH suburban ambulatory centers.
