Our licensed Level II Special Care Nursery provides sophisticated care for premature and critically ill newborns. The nursery is always staffed with a neonatologist or pediatrician who provides immediate care for your newborn. We know it is important for you to stay close to home during your pregnancy. Our state-of-the art facility allows moms to bond with their baby while providing a supportive environment.
Infants who require more intensive care will be stabilized in our Special Care Nursery and transferred to St. Elizabeth’s Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit in Boston or Boston Children’s Hospital. Boston Children’s Hospital provides a highly trained transport team to care for infants during transport. When the infant is ready for our Level II care again, we will arrange transfer back to Good Samaritan Medical Center for the remainder of the hospital stay and provide ongoing care for the transition to home.
Shah Hossain, MD, is the chief of Neonatology at Good Samaritan Medical Center overseeing our Level II Special Care Nursery, and is an assistant in medicine, Division of Newborn Medicine at Boston Children's Hospital.
