Newborn Pediatrics

Newborn services at Children’s Hospital provide daily care for newborn infants, thanks to our team of physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, social workers, and physical and occupational therapists. Breastfeeding promotion and support are key initiatives of this area.

Greenville Health System is pleased to have two Baby Friendly designated hospitals: Greenville Memorial Hospital and Oconee Memorial Hospital.

The Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative is a global program sponsored by the World Health Organization (WHO) and United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) to encourage and recognize hospitals and birthing centers that offer optimal level of care for infant feeding.

Baby-Friendly designation is a gold standard that many hospitals across the country are trying to achieve. Not only does Baby-Friendly designation promote and support breastfeeding, it also promotes and supports skin-to-skin contact and rooming-in.

Listen as Dr. Jennifer Hudson explains the process of receiving Baby-Friendly status.

Newborn Nursery Services

It is our goal to provide high-quality, personalized medical care to our patients from the moment they are born. As a result, in all GHS birth facilities, we have a newborn nursery equipped to provide Level I daily care to newborn infants up to 10 days of age. The Newborn Nursery is staffed by full-time, in-hospital pediatricians as well as community pediatricians, attending physicians, and in-hospital pediatric resident physicians.

Bryan Neonatal
Intensive Care Unit

The Level III Bryan Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Children’s Hospital is located in Greenville Memorial Hospital. The NICU offers the region’s largest, most advanced level of specialty care for premature or critically ill infants. And we’re one of the state’s leading perinatal teaching centers—that means our experts teach student doctors and other healthcare providers the special skills they need to care for babies and their parents.

We’re ready 24 hours a day with the latest technology and monitoring equipment made for tiny babies (ventilators, incubators, specialized feeding devices and intravenous equipment). And we use the most up-to-date evidence-based practice models.
