Northside Hospital Cherokee recently held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for its Special Care Nursery — which added 10 new beds for some of its most precious little ones. The additions were unveiled on Jan. 3.
Also known as the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), the Special Care Nursery at Northside Cherokee is now equipped to treat up to 26 premature babies.
Babies that arrive with complex needs require extra special care and, at Northside, each receives individualized care that is critical to help them continue to grow.
“We will continue to provide Level III, expert care to our patients in the Cherokee County area,” said Sarah Stevens, clinical manager, Special Care Nursery at Northside Cherokee.
The Northside Hospital Special Care Nurseries in the Atlanta, Cherokee and Forsyth Women’s Centers and the Northside Hospital Gwinnett Women's Pavilion all deliver the highest level of neonatal care available.
