At Metro, we dedicate our lives to the health and well-being of all our patients, but no one touches our hearts quite like the frail infants in need of support.
Every day at the Intermediate Care Nursery, our highly trained staff have the awesome privilege and responsibility of transforming emergency situations into the joyous, memorable moments that should accompany the birth of any child. Metro’s Intermediate Care Nursery offers:
• 6 infant stations
• Private seating areas at each station
• Rooming in for mother during baby's stay in the hospital
• Better control of lights, noise levels & temperature to minimize stimulation
• State-of-the-art equipment
• Private breastfeeding room
• Flexibility to accommodate twins
It’s impossible to describe the emotions that overcome a parent when a newborn faces serious complications. It’s as if your own heart stops, and time stands still. Every part of your mind, body and soul cries out for help. Thanks to the Intermediate Care Nursery, Metro will continue to answer that cry!
Thousands of babies can quite literally breathe easier. Thousands of mothers will not be left with empty arms when their newborns face complications. And countless families have a chance to pull through a crisis, to heal and to nurture life…together.
