Neonatology/Special Care Nursery at St. Elizabeth's
Complete, Uninterrupted Care
Our maternal fetal medicine specialists are superbly trained to care for women with high-risk pregnancies and to make their delivery as comfortable as possible. We provide care and consultation 24 hours a day, and share patient reports covering consultations, test results or proposed treatments with our patient's primary care physician or obstetrician. All care is coordinated by our high-risk obstetricians with other neonatal team members, including fetal surgeons, neonatologists, neonatal nurses and nurse practitioners.
Comprehensive Neonatal Services
The 30-bed Level III NICU is one of only a handful in Boston that provide the most advanced care and technology for premature and critically ill newborns. Neonatologists provide on-site care 24 hours a day. Terri Gorman, MD, is the Medical Director. Our multidisciplinary team ensures collaboration with respiratory therapists, social workers, infant development specialists, audiologists and nutritionists to care for these babies who have complex, and often ongoing, medical and developmental needs. Our program strives to serve the needs of the entire family and to deliver hope and compassionate care--both before and after they leave the hospital. A special focus on providing parent education, emotional support and critical resources, helps families develop the confidence to care for their baby at home. To further help families, a social worker meets with every family and coordinates follow-up arrangements with appropriate agencies and providers, if needed.
