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.
