Sanford nursery to expand services for better care of drug-exposed or special needs babies

 


BEMIDJI -- As the number of drug-exposed newborns increases, the Sanford Bemidji Medical Center plans to use a new nursery to provide those infants with specialized care.

The new 10-room nursery, which will be completed by the end of the year, is a response to the changing needs to Sanford’s patients according to Lisa Johnson, the medical center’s director of women’s and children’s services.

“We’ve identified with our substance-exposed newborns, that they really strive in that quiet, dark, calm environment, and our current nursery isn’t conducive to that,” Johnson said.
