All nurses are certified in neonatal resuscitation, and participate as team members during complicated or high-risk births. The staff practices under a primary nursing model, which assures that a team of nurses provides consistent newborn care. Our staff also includes a neonatal nurse practitioner and certified lactation counselors, who offer instruction and guidance on breastfeeding premature newborns.

Other nursery staff – unit coordinators, unit assistants, social workers, respiratory therapists, physical therapists, speech therapist, occupational therapists, and nutritionists – work collaboratively with our nurses to support the delivery of care.
