Learn more about Lactation Support
In the spring of 2022, Good Samaritan Medical Center introduced its expanded and state-of-the art Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, NICU. The modernization project allows our highly experienced team of Neonatologists, Neonatal Nurse Practitioners, Nurses and other specialists to provide the highest quality of care for our tiniest, fragile patients while providing a home away from home for their families.
Good Samaritan boasts 12 single-family, private NICU rooms so parents can sleep and stay at their baby’s bedside around the clock. There are also two double rooms to accommodate twins. Every room has natural light, comfortable sleeping arrangements and a refrigerator to store mothers’ breast milk, plus a shared family kitchen and lounge.
Having a baby in the NICU can be a really stressful time for families. Our care is family-centered, allowing NICU parents to have a home base at the hospital for the entirety of their stay, whether that’s a few days or several months. When the family is nearby, babies thrive developmentally and go home sooner. With constant attention and a comprehensive level of support for each baby and family, parents can be more involved in the baby’s care with direct and personal assistance. NICU parents will find a nurturing environment where they can build their confidence as they get to know their baby and how to care for him or her, with lactation and developmental support.
Good Samaritan was the first Colorado hospital to be a designated Baby-Friendly Hospital and has been ranked “high-performing” in maternity care by U.S. News and World Report. We are a community hospital that consistently provides compassionate, safe and high-quality care for our newborns, while providing parents with the information and resources they need to support their growing healthy family.
