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.

This nursery also has a dedicated room for elective circumcisions. For babies that need a little extra care after birth, we provide a Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
