Neonatal Intensive Care
When you deliver at Birthways, feel peace of mind knowing we offer neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) services. This means newborns who are moderately sick or born several weeks early can access the medical care they need to get well.
Level II NICU Care
Mary Greeley Medical Center holds Level II designation as a special care nursery from the American Academy of Pediatrics. This means we can care for babies:
- Born at or after 32 weeks weighing 3.3 pounds or more
- Born before 32 weeks or weighing less than 3.3 pounds before they can be moved to a higher level NICU
- Doing well and growing after getting care in a higher-level NICU but need further care and monitoring before they can go home
- Who need help to breathe
Your Baby's Care Team
Your baby's care team includes specially trained staff, including pediatric hospitalists, doctors who focus on taking care of babies and children in the hospital.
Keeping your baby comfortable, safe, and with you is our main priority. That’s why every hospital room at Birthways has a Panda® Warmer — so no matter the level of care your baby needs, the two of you can stay together in the same room throughout your stay. This special piece of technology:
- Regulates your baby’s temperature
- Provides a secure place for your baby to receive examinations, screening tests, and medications
- Tracks your baby’s weight and vital signs
Comfortable, Familiar Environment
When you’re ready to be discharged from the hospital, your baby may need to stay for continued care. For your convenience, your baby will remain in the same room even after you go home, and you can visit as often and for as long as possible.
