Postpartum care and support in central Denver

At Rose Medical Center, we believe postpartum support is just as essential as compassionate, quality care during labor and delivery. That is why the Rose Babies team continues to care for you and your baby by providing comprehensive postpartum services on our Mom/Baby unit. This space is secured and locked so you can rest assured that you and your baby are safe and being taken care by our experienced Mom/Baby nurses.

Well-baby nursery

Rose Babies is home to a state-of-the-art well-baby nursery. Following delivery, some new parents don’t want to let their newborn out of their sight, while others like to have time to rest and recuperate before heading home with their new baby. Our beautiful well-baby nursery, directly adjacent to the Mom/Baby nurses station, is a place where your baby will be safe and comfortable while the family gets some rest. This nursery also has a dedicated room for elective circumcisions.

Neonatal intensive care

Rose Medical Center is also home to a Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Here, our highly experienced neonatal doctors and nurses deliver expert, family-centered care to babies who need additional support after birth. As a Level III NICU, we provide advanced neonatal care, meaning the likelihood that we will need to transfer your baby to another facility is very low.

Luxury suites for childbirth recovery

We offer private luxury suites for patients interested in an enhanced level of comfort, service and privacy. These spacious, quiet hospital rooms include features and amenities similar to a hotel suite and offer a calm atmosphere for you and your guests during your hospital stay.

  • Large sofa-bed for overnight visitors
  • Locked and secure private entry into the suites
  • Oversized windows that provide panoramic views and natural sunlight
