Mercy San Juan Medical Center: Level III NICU
Mercy San Juan's NICU has long been a leader in caring for the smallest of newborns.
The most recent data from the Vermont Oxford Network shines an even brighter light on the healthcare professionals who make up the Level III NICU - including neonatologists (doctors specializing in premature and high-risk babies), registered nurses, respiratory therapists, developmental specialists, lactation consultants, dietitians and pharmacists.
Mercy San Juan's NICU includes 26 licensed beds and is equipped to provide specialized care including invasive monitoring, conventional ventilation, surgery, transport service, inhaled nitric oxide and high frequency oscillator ventilation.
It is located on the third floor of the Family Birth Center, adjacent to the 32-bed labor, birth, recovery and maternal/infant unit, high-risk pre-birth and post-birth unit, two operating suites, visitors' waiting room and appropriate support areas.
And for new moms who are unable to provide enough breast milk for their baby, Mercy San Juan proudly provides donor breast milk to ensure your baby gets the nutrients they need.
