Many babies need extra medical attention after they're born, which is why JSMC provides a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) to ensure their health and give mothers additional peace of mind.
Our NICU cares for premature, critically ill, and twins or other multiple-birth infants. In addition to extensive training and advanced technology, our NICU team follows a family-centered approach to neonatal intensive care. The emphasis is on providing the family with as much information as possible, a process that often begins with a tour of the NICU before delivery.
Throughout your stay, our staff will carefully explain the baby's prognosis and course of treatment. We'll also try to arrange times for the mother to be with her newborn. Fathers, partners, and grandparents also are welcome and encouraged to help nurture the tiny new life.
Maternity services are located on the third floor of hospital and can only be accessed by one elevator for security purposes. For a tour to meet our staff and see our range of services first hand, call (270) 887-0330.
