The 35-bed NICU is on a dedicated floor of Spartanburg Medical Center. In addition to advanced tools to monitor and treat newborns, it includes a room for breastfeeding mothers, plus breastfeeding consultants, and a private “Nesting Room” with a bed and shower. Here, parents can stay overnight before they take their baby home, and staff teach them how to take care of their little one’s special needs. And to keep you connected when you are away, parents can reach their baby’s nurse by phone 24 hours a day.
