Most babies are born healthy and full term. But for those newborns who need special care and support, Saint Vincent Hospital offers a Special Care Nursery. Our seven-bed special care nursery is certified as a Level II, which means we can care for all but the sickest infants who must be transported to a special children’s hospital.
What to Expect
A baby in the Special Care Nursery is typically connected to a variety of medical monitors that allow the staff to know exactly what he or she needs at all times. The Special Care Nursery staff is comprised of registered nurses specializing in the care of premature and sick infants and they will explain the purpose of every monitor, tube, and test used for your baby.
Our goal is to get your baby well as soon as possible so that you can return home to experience the joys of parenthood.
