Well Baby Nursery and Level III NICU to Care for All Babies

Whether your baby is born without complications or is a high-risk or premature newborn, Swedish has the staff and facilities to care for your baby.

Well Baby Nursery for Full-Term Babies

If your newborn does not need to go to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), you can plan the time you spend with your baby as you wish. Our Well Baby Nursery provides total newborn care in an area fully equipped for vital signs, blood tests and any other routine procedures. The Well Baby Nursery is also locked and only "banded" individuals and authorized staff are allowed entrance. We encourage you to "room-in" with your baby as much as possible, as this is an important step in the bonding process between you and your child.

Neonatal Intensive Care Unit for Premature and Critically Ill Babies

Our NICU is a Level III unit, which means we can provide the intensive treatment and care your baby may require. The NICU is staffed with Neonatal Nurse Clinicians, Registered Nurses and Neonatologists, special pediatric physicians. For your added peace of mind, the NICU is locked at all times and special identification is required to gain access.
