Special Care Nursery
HSHS St. Mary’s Hospital in Decatur
In addition to our newborn nursery, St. Mary’s has a special care nursery for babies who require additional medical attention or specialized care.
In our special care nursery, we can:
- stabilize high-risk and/or premature infants.
- Transport babies to a Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at our sister hospital St. John’s Children's Hospital in Springfield or another hospital as recommended by your care provider.
