If your baby is born prematurely or has a problem that requires
closer attention and monitoring, you have the reassurance
of knowing that he or she can be taken to our Special Care
Nursery. Our staff is specifically trained to care for our
tiniest patients. You can be comfortable in knowing that the
latest technology is available to you and your newborn should
the need arise.
Our newborn nursery will feature special viewing windows
so young children can see their new baby brothers or sisters.
As a courtesy to those awaiting the arrival of a new addition
to the family, we offer a complimentary coffee bar.
Family and Friends Visitation
Visiting hours are flexible to accommodate the needs of the
entire family. Overnight accommodations are available in each
suite for dad or your support person. Before you come to the
hospital, we encourage you to make arrangements for a family
member or friend to care for your other children while you
are in the hospital, but brothers and sisters of the new baby
are encouraged to visit during your stay.
For the sake of your newborn's health, visitors should
be free from illness. To prevent infection, we ask that all
visitors thoroughly scrub their hands, either at the sink
or at the waterless hand washing dispenser in your room, before
holding your baby. If you have concerns, please discuss them
with your baby's pediatrician. You may wish to tell
potential visitors of a convenient time to visit you or your
baby. Our nurses will be happy to inform visitors of your
desire for privacy for occasional naps or just private time
with your newborn. ECM Hospital has a NO SMOKING policy for
patients, visitors and staff members.
We are as concerned about your baby’s safety as you
are, and we take every precaution to ensure each infant’s
safety. Our nurseries are attended at all times by hospital
staff, and access is restricted. We have multiple security
checks, which we will explain to you when you are admitted
to the hospital.
