The unit is also closer to the Neonatal ICU.

“We’re going to be able to have patients in this new unit on Monday, and going to have moms and babies under one roof in the same hospital whether they have a normal, healthy baby with them or they have a high-risk pregnancy that leaves them with the baby in the intensive care unit,” said Gina Minert, the nurse manager for the new unit.
