Children’s – Minneapolis Special Care Nursery

The Special Care Nursery is a 33-bed level II nursery caring for premature infants at 30–36 weeks gestation.

The unit is housed on the 7th Floor of Abbott Northwestern Hospital and staffed by nurses at Children’s. Close proximity to the postpartum units allows mothers to be located near their newborn infants.

The Special Care Nursery was designed by a group of nurses to accommodate the privacy needs for our patients and their families, while allowing for a quiet, nurturing environment.
