Level II NICU in affiliation with Children’s Mercy
Our state-of-the-art Level II Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), in affiliation with Children’s Mercy, stands ready 24 hours a day, seven days a week if your new arrival needs it. Each single-family room is equipped with incubators and specialized monitoring equipment to care for sick and premature newborn infants born at 32-weeks gestational age or greater, as well as full-term babies who need extra support.
In addition to our highly-trained physicians and staff at The Birth Place, we have board-certified neonatologists and neonatal nurse practitioners (NNPs) from Children’s Mercy. We also have RNs with specialized training of care for newborns who are at risk or experiencing difficulties after delivery. They all share a compassionate, personal approach that benefits your family, as well as your baby.
In our advanced Level II NICU, mom can stay overnight with her baby in the same room, providing peace of mind when you need it most. A parent-only room on the NICU floor lets parents bond and socialize with other NICU parents. And our secure webcams bring out-of-town family and friends closer to your baby, even when they’re far apart.
