Welcome to the Special Care Nursery (SCN) at Platte Valley Medical Center. Our nursery is special and unique. We have eight private rooms for at-risk infants and those born up to  eight weeks premature. Every private room also offers overnight accommodations for mom or another family member to allow parents to be comfortably present with their child on a 24-hour basis.

Parent holding baby's handFrom the moment your precious little one is admitted to the SCN, we are planning for the day you will be able to go home together. It is our desire that your time with us is as pleasant as possible and our goal is to provide your baby with the best possible care. We see parents as our partners and will include you in your infant’s daily plan of care.

The information in this site pertains to your baby’s admission and stay in the SCN. More details will be given throughout your stay and will be customized to your baby’s condition. We are honored to care for you and your baby. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to make your stay more comfortable, and don't hesitate to call us at 303-498-3400 with any questions.
