A special care crèche arrives in Midland
The youngest of Midland will benefit from the addition of a special care nursery at MidMichigan Medical Center – Midland. The medical center has received state approval to move forward with plans to open a Level II special care nursery in early 2022.
“Giving birth is stressful even when everything is going well. With the addition of a Level II Special Care Nursery, we can now provide an even higher level of care for babies born prematurely or requiring additional treatment, such as low oxygen levels or antibiotics, ”said Tonia VanWieren, Director of Nursing System, Kindergarten, Child and Women’s Health. “For mom and dad, this means their new family member can be treated closer to home, rather than being transferred to another facility.”
