Level II Special Care Nursery

While most deliveries progress according to plan, it’s important to schedule your delivery at a hospital prepared for the unexpected. Lakeside Women's Hospital provides maternal-fetal services for expecting moms as early as 35 weeks gestation.

Our special care nursery, also known as a LEVEL 2 special care nursery, is equipped with leading edge technology including monitors, warmers and respiratory equipment. The nursery offers an intimate environment where light, temperature and noise are controlled to help promote baby’s growth for infants born after 35 weeks or weighing greater than 1500 grams. This includes infants who have physiologic immaturity or who are moderately ill with problems expected to resolve rapidly and are not anticipated to need subspecialty services on an urgent basis. This may also include providing:

  • Care for infants convalescing after intensive care (need to feed, grow and maintain body temperature)
  • Respiratory assistance using continuous pressure support for less than 24 hours
  • Stabilization for infants born earlier than 35 weeks or weighing less than 1500 grams until transfer to a Level 3 NICU
