Both Emory University Hospital Midtown, Emory Johns Creek Hospital, and Emory Decatur Hospital are home to level III neonatal intensive care units (NICUs) for premature or very ill infants. At our Midtown location, the NICU is part of the Special Care Nursery (SCN).
The SCN is made up of a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), and a neonatal intermediate care (NIMC) nursery. All of our doctors, nurse practitioners (NPs), and other health care staff members care for all infants in both units. Though we try to have the same staff member consistently care for your infant, rest assured that all of our SCN staff members are well trained and experienced and can care for any baby.
