"My son had to stay in the special care nursery. The nurses were so kind and loved him just as much as I do."

— Jessica, Birth Center Patient

What is the Special Care Nursery?

If your infant does have to stay at the hospital longer than anticipated, our special care nursery offers all the amenities, privacy and comfort you'll need during your stay.

Care for Infants as Early as 32 Weeks

Our trailblazing 20-bed, Level II special care nursery has the personnel and advanced equipment to care for all infants born as early as 32 weeks.

Private Rooms

Our single-family rooms allow parents to spend the night with their infants in a comfortable, private space. Individual rooms also minimize risk of infection, provide a safer environment for education about newborn care and allow baby and parents to bond more easily.

Natural Light

Babies gain weight and generally recover more quickly with natural light.

Specially Trained Nursing Staff

Nurses are trained in neonatal advanced life support.
