Despite the greatest care we take and all the plans we make, sometimes pregnancy and birth don’t happen as we hoped.
At Sanford Birth Center—a part of Sanford Health—we offer specialized care for babies who are born premature or with medical complications. Our neonatal intensive care team is led by a neonatologist who specializes in baby care. The Sanford Birth Center staff is here to help not only your infant, but you and your family as well. We encourage you to spend as much time as you wish with your baby and participate in his or her care.
Sanford Birth Center has a Level 3B NICU which means we care for infants less than 28 weeks (seven months) gestation and less than 1000 grams (three pounds).
Management of preterm infants (22—36 weeks) and full term infants (37—40 weeks) with complications from birth
Advanced diagnostic studies
Synagis is an immunization for the prevention of Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV). RSV is a common virus that affects people of all ages causing cold-like symptoms in infants and most children. In premature infants, however, RSV infection can result in serious respiratory disease, sometimes requiring hospitalization.
Shots are given on a monthly basis during the winter (RSV) season.

Phototherapy is a treatment given to newborns who have a condition known as jaundice. Jaundice is common in newborn babies. It is caused by build up of a yellow-brown pigment called bilirubin, which is found in the blood and skin. No medical treatment is needed in most cases. It usually improves in four to five days.
Babies with higher amounts of bilirubin in their blood will receive phototherapy treatment. The baby is placed under special fluorescent lights that are absorbed by the baby's skin.
The baby's bilirubin will be measured daily.
If your baby becomes more yellow after you've gone home, call your baby's doctor.

24-hour transport servicesThe NICU at Sanford Health has a skilled nurse transport team that is available for transporting sick or preterm infants to and from outlying hospitals via ground or air ambulance.
Neonatal resuscitation program (NRP)
This course has been designed to teach an evidence-based approach to resuscitation of the newborn. The causes, prevention, and management of mild to severe neonatal asphyxia are carefully explained so that health professionals may develop optimal knowledge and skill in resuscitation.
The Neonatal Resuscitation Program is an educational program that introduces the concepts and basic skills of neonatal resuscitation.
The S.T.A.B.L.E. program
This educational program provides general guidelines for the assessment and stabilization of sick infants in the post-resuscitation/pre-transport stabiliation period. These guidelines are based upon evidence-based recommendations in neonatal texts and published literature whenever possible.
