Chambersburg Hospital is here for you even in the unexpected, offering a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) Level II in the Family Birthing Unit to care for sick or premature babies. Equipped with the latest technology, the NICU Level II allows babies born as early as 32 weeks gestation or babies with unexpected medical complications to be treated at Chambersburg Hospital.
A neonatologist will work alongside specially trained nurses and staff to welcome your child safely. The level II nursery can provide private rooms for your baby to promote skin-to-skin or kangaroo care as well as breastfeeding. In the event your baby is delivered elsewhere, he or she may be able to transfer back to Chambersburg to continue care that may be needed, closer to home.
