Nursery and NICU

VHS has four hospitals with maternity services and Level I well baby nurseries. Three of those hospitals also have Level II special care nurseries for infants who are moderately ill, and Level III neonatal intensive care units (NICUs) to treat seriously ill or premature infants. These facilities have specially trained personnel, such as neonatologists, nurse practitioners, NICU-trained nurses and respiratory therapists who provide continuous life support and comprehensive care for extremely high-risk newborn infants including preemies and those with complex and critical illness.

All four facilities also offer classes to help prepare you for delivery and increase your comfort level in caring for your newborn.
