Lactation and Breastfeeding
After your baby is born, a lactation consultant is available to offer assistance and lend words of encouragement. Her goal is to provide you with the individual support you may need. We are here to support you in any feeding method you choose for your baby. After being discharged, new mothers have the opportunity to make an appointment with the lactation consultant, if needed.
We also offer a support group for breastfeeding mothers.
Neonatal Intensive Care Unit
Our Level II neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) is there for babies who need a little extra help. Each of our nine private rooms offers the best growth and development possible in a womb-like, environmentally controlled setting. With the assistance of our transport team, newborns in critical health situations can be moved by either ambulance or helicopter to Good Samaritan. Each of our nine private rooms were built roomy – large enough to accommodate the unique respiratory, nutritional and other needs of premature, multiple births or other complications that may arise after birth. Having a premature infant or one with medical complications that require the special services of a NICU is an emotional time. That’s why the family-centered philosophy of care is so important; parents are free to visit any time. Our NICU environment includes:
- Private rooms for families
- Specially equipped rooms large enough for twins and triplets
- Equipment for respiratory maintenance of tiny patients
- Ability to perform minor surgical procedures
- State of the art cardiac/respiratory monitoring, including centralized monitoring
- Adjustable lighting
- Many windows to let in natural light
- Flat screen televisions
- Transition room, where parents can practice how to care for their babies before they leave the hospital
- AirCare helicopter ambulance and ground ambulance NICU transport service
