Special Care Nursery
24-Hour Hotline: (803) 791-2525
You may have questions while you are here or once you get home with your new baby. Our nursing staff is available 24 hours a day to answer your questions and address your concerns.
Special Care and Attention
Our Special Care Nursery, located close to our labor and delivery unit, is designed for newborns who need special care and attention. These needs may include special bassinets with equipment that assists the baby with breathing, body temperature or other vulnerabilities.
Answering Your Questions
Our expert staff is glad to explain any equipment used to help your baby gain strength to return home, and will demonstrate how best to be involved in your baby’s care while in this nursery.
Most importantly, if your newborn is in our Special Care Nursery, we expect you to have questions — our nursery staff is eager to explain what steps and procedures are being taken, as well as why, so that you can be confident that your baby is in loving and expert hands.
Medical studies have proven that human touch is vitally important to a child's well-being. Our Kangaroo Care program allows parents and premature babies to develop a bond by sharing loving, healing contact. Our Special Care Nursery even has private family rooms — comfortable places for you to relax while you visit and feed your baby.
If your baby requires additional health care services when you leave the hospital, our nursing staff will work with you to arrange any special services you may need through either our medical resources or those available through community and other health care organizations.
