Riverton Hospital has expanded its special care nursery to
allow moms to stay in the same room with their babies who are too sick to go home. The result is that families can stay together.
A special care nursery takes care of infants who are sicker than the typical newborn, but not sick enough to be in a neonatal intensive care unit. Babies who need to stay a little longer due to jaundice, low oxygen levels, or antibiotic therapy have access to a 24-hour pediatrician from Primary Children’s and ongoing support for mom.
The Special Care Nursery is located on the fourth floor of Riverton's patient tower in the Primary Children’s Unit.
Riverton Hospital is the only hospital that partners with physicians and nurses from Primary Children’s Hospital to provide inpatient and outpatient services outside of Primary’s main campus.
