We are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience. To do so, we are actively working with consultants to update the website by increasing its accessibility and usability by persons who use assistive technologies such as automated tools, keyboard-only navigation, and screen readers.

We are working to have the website conform to the relevant standards of the Section 508 Web Accessibility Standards developed by the United States Access Board, as well as the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1. These standards and guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. We believe that conformance with these standards and guidelines will help make the website more user friendly for all people.

Our efforts are ongoing. While we strive to have the website adhere to these guidelines and standards, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website. If, at any time, you have specific questions or concerns about the accessibility of any particular webpage, please contact WebsiteAccess@tenethealth.com so that we may be of assistance.

Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)

Taking special care of at-risk newborns

While most deliveries result in a healthy baby, sometimes there are complications. The Mary Stuart Rogers Birthing Center includes a Level II Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) for these situations.

Most babies who need NICU care are admitted quickly after birth. A physician may order this because a baby is simply born prematurely or because it shows signs of complications soon after birth.

Having an onsite Level II NICU at Emanuel Medical Center allows newborns with low birth weights or certain medical complications to be cared for at the same hospital. Onsite pediatric specialists attend complicated births and care for infants in the NICU. If your baby does enter the NICU, you can depend on Emanuel’s NICU nurses, board-certified neonatologist and neonatal nurse practitioners to care for your child.
