If you deliver your baby at Novant Health Matthews Medical Center
or Novant Health Huntersville Medical Center
, our Level III special care nurseries are available to provide around-the-clock care for critically ill and premature babies. We have neonatologists and neonatal nurse practitioners on staff who work closely with a team of specially trained registered nurses, respiratory therapists, medical social workers and other neonatal professionals should your baby require a higher level of care.
In the event your baby requires more advanced care, he or she may be transferred to Novant Health Hemby Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)
, located within Novant Health Presbyterian Medical Center in Charlotte. Our neonatal critical care transport team
has extensive experience caring for premature or critically ill newborns, and our specially equipped ambulances are designed to provide continued care during the transition from one hospital to another.
