Special Care Nursery

In addition to our newborn nursery, St. Mary’s has a special care nursery for babies who require additional medical attention or specialized care.

In our special care nursery, we can:
  • stabilize high-risk and/or premature infants
  • Transport babies to a Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at our sister hospital St. John’s Children's Hospital in Springfield or another hospital as recommended by your care provider.
