Special Care Nursery

One in every 10 babies born will require some kind of assistance after birth. If this is your baby, the team in our 6 bed Special Care Nursery at Parkview Medical Center is the most experienced in Southern Colorado. Parkview’s level IIB, Special Care Nursery is staffed with seven board certified neonatologists who are highly trained physicians specialized to care for premature and sick newborns. Neonatal Nurse Practitioners are specialized advanced practice nurses who have had additional training to specialize in the care of premature and sick newborns. This allows for the best possible care for your baby 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. As a team, they care for premature infants and sick newborns who may need treatment for infection, breathing on a respirator, oxygen by mask or specialized feeding methods.
