Springfield Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit

When you deliver your baby at Mercy, you can take comfort in knowing there’s a team of specialists standing by, should your baby require immediate emergency medical attention. Our Level III NICU offers the region’s most advanced care for premature or critically ill babies.

Mercy's Department of Neonatology is made up of members of Pediatrix Medical Group - physicians and neonatal nurse practitioners use the latest technologies and techniques to offer your baby the best possible care. Neonatologists direct your child's care during a stay in the Mercy NICU. Our team is available daily to discuss your baby's medical care.

Thanks to the generosity of Betty and Bobby Allison, we opened the doors to a state-of-the-art NICU in 2013. We know that single-patient rooms better meet the unique, changing needs of each baby. The new rooms allow staff to limit or permit outside stimulus as the baby develops. Nurses are close at hand and parents can experience enhanced, private, hands-on participation in their baby’s care. We also have “twin” rooms available to accommodate multiple-birth siblings.

Additional features of our Level III neonatal intensive care unit include:

  • Breastfeeding support, including breast pumps in every patient room, donor milk and three lactation rooms
  • Family lounge with a play area for siblings
  • Private consultation rooms
  • Ronald McDonald House with ten beds for overnight stays
  • Family and breastfeeding support groups
