Special Care Nursery

We Keep You Close To Your Baby

Your baby may visit the Special Care Nursery temporarily or may need to stay for an extended visit. Our staff realizes the importance of the close bonds you have with your baby and the need to keep you informed of your baby's progress. During our beside chats, we offer opportunities for you to ask questions and help us understand your concerns.

We keep you close to your baby by encouraging you to visit often and enjoy time getting to know your newborn. We have educational videos to help you gain an understanding of the premature infant and the special challenges they may face. Our lactation consultants visit the Special Care Nursery daily to assist with feeding or pumping questions.
