What is a Level II Nursery?


Having a Level II Special Care Nursery means we are equipped to manage complications that regular nurseries cannot. Our Special Care Nursery staff creates a warm, comfortable environment to help your child overcome challenges and begin to grow and develop. Our infant care team is trained to deal with unexpected situations and to implement specialized care when needed.

Conditions we manage include:

  • Low birth weight
  • Genetic conditions
  • Respiratory difficulties
  • Infections
  • Drug dependence

Our special nursery gives expectant parents an extra level of assurance. The Level II Nursery is always open. Parents may visit their baby anytime, day or night.

If an infant needs continuous ventilation they will need to be transferred to a Level III NICU providing the appropriate care as close to home as possible.
