Community Hospital delivers about 2,400 babies per year and its Neonatal Intensive Care Unit is the only Northwest Indiana hospital with neonatologists in-house 24 hours a day. A team of nurses and respiratory, occupational, physical and speech therapists provides intervention for infants with special medical needs.

Through a new partnership, critically-ill babies in the NICU receive care from University of Chicago Medicine neonatologists, which also makes it faster to transport babies in need of additional specialty care.

Michelle Cherry, nurse manager for Community’s NICU, said, “The nursing staff is very experienced and many have been here since the unit opened 30 years ago. This experience can make all the difference in noticing a baby’s condition change and acting quickly.”
