Sometimes, newborns may need more specialized care. And expectant parents an extra level of assurance. That's why we have a dedicated Level II Special Care Nursery to deliver exceptional care for babies who may need extra help to achieve the best start in life.
Our Special Care Nursery is designed to provide newborns born as early as 32 weeks gestation that weigh more than 1500 grams or with moderate medical problems. Our staff has extensive experience in dealing with premature or sick newborns. Whatever condition necessitates a baby's admission to the special care unit, each baby receives individualized care.
We offer a family centered approach to care. Families are welcomed and encouraged to come to the Special Care Nursery. Late preterm infants may also be cared for in the mother’s room by a nurse from the Special Care Nursery.
We realize that it can be very difficult for a new mom to be discharged from the hospital before it’s time for her new baby to go home. That’s why we provide guest rooms at no charge to the immediate family of an infant who must stay in the hospital beyond his mother’s stay with us.
