At Calvary Health Care Lenah Valley we have a Level 2 Special Care Nursery that can care for newborns from 34 weeks gestation.

We have a team of highly skilled professionals, committed to providing the best care and outcome for your baby. We provide 24 hour care by expert paediatricians and our team of highly skilled midwives.

Our paediatricians will visit your baby everyday, and they are on call 24 hours a day if required.  Our special care nursery is located right next door to our 5 delivery suites and is fully equipped with specailised medical equipment.

If your baby requires more intensive care, we are fully equipped to stabilize your baby  prior to transport to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Transfer support is provided by the Newborn Emergency Transport Service, from the Royal Hobart Hospital, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Once your baby’s condition improves, we encourage transfer back to our unit, until your baby is ready for discharge home. The Unit is also a step down facility for baby’s born elsewhere who no longer require intensive care nursing and are not yet ready for discharge.

Calvary Lenah Valley Hospital has a Cardiotocograph or CTG machine offering patients peace of mind as it enables their obstetrician to monitor the baby’s fetal heart rate and uterine contractions remotely from their consulting suites and mobile phones.
