While we always expect the birth of a baby to be uncomplicated, sometimes the unexpected happens. It’s comforting to know the Birthplace has a licensed Level II nursery to meet those special needs. The Level II nursery is equipped with four specially designed beds and state-of-the-art technology including monitors, ventilators, and intravenous infusion pumps.
Our specially trained staff provides care for infants with:
- Suspected or confirmed sepsis (infection)
- Respiratory difficulties requiring oxygen by hood or cannula
- Metabolic needs such as low blood sugar (hypoglycemia)
- Jaundice (hyperbilirubinemia) requiring phototherapy
At the Birthplace, we understand the need for special care may be stressful and overwhelming for parents. We want parents to be involved in their infant’s care without having a long commute to do so.
