Where our tiniest babies get their best start in life
Over 200,000 babies have been born at St. Joe’s over the years. Our new Family Birthing Centre includes a Level 2B Neonatal Intensive Care Unit that cares for pre-term infants as early as 32 weeks gestation. About 700 babies are cared for in this unit every year.
What’s unique about this Unit is the focus on preparing new parents to take their babies home. The space includes transitional rooms where parents can learn to bathe and feed their baby on their own with a nurse nearby. Our aim is to ensure parents feel confident leaving St. Joe’s with their new bundle of joy.
You can help children receive the best healthcare possible
Our commitment to children means equipping our professionals with the tools and spaces they need to provide children with the best healthcare possible. Government funding doesn’t always cover equipment or renovations to make our spaces more child-friendly. Your donation today can help St. Joe’s continue to meet the healthcare needs of children in our community.
