Babies that need special attention can get the level of care they need in our Special Care Nursery—designated a Level II program by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. The nursery is staffed by expert providers and offers the latest technologies to care for babies requiring added levels of support.
Babies that may require special care nursing include:
- Babies born prematurely
- Twins and triplets
- Infants with certain metabolic conditions
The nursery offers 24/7 in-house coverage by a neonatologist—a pediatric specialist whose focus and expertise is in the care of newborn infants. In addition, all the nurses who staff our Special Care Nursery are RNs with advanced training and education in the treatment of infants.
