Indiana’s leading neonatal doctors, nurses, and facilities are here for you and your new baby at Hancock Health. We partner with Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital, the largest neonatal infant care unit in the state. Expecting families can join us for childbirth preparation classes, which include a tour of our maternity unit.
Nursery Amenities & Features
If your baby is born prematurely or has complex medical needs, Peyton Manning’s neonatal nurses are available on site 24/7. Neonatologists can also be consulted virtually while you’re in the Andis Maternity unit.
We have a Level II Special Care Nursery, providing specialized care for babies born as early as 32 weeks. Doctors and nurses watch over newborns to make sure they’re growing well.
Care provided in our nursery includes:
- Frequent assessments
- Oxygen and continuous CPAP
- IV fluid and medications
- Help with feedings
- Personalized feeding plans with International Board-certified Lactation Consultants
Level II care falls between regular newborn care and the more intensive care in a Level III neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). It serves as a comfortable environment for babies who have been released from a NICU but need a little more time to grow before going home.
