Located within the Mom/Baby Unit is our Nursery. Here, full-term babies will receive the medical attention they need during their first few days, including regular physical examination, vaccination (if needed), circumcision (for boys), and a first bath. While we encourage parents to room-in with their newborns, nurses are available 24-hours a day in the Nursery to help care for your child.
Babies born early (at or after 24 weeks) or requiring extra medical attention will be cared for in Sky Ridge's Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit following birth.
