DULUTH — St. Luke's will soon open its Level II Specialized Care Nursery at the hospital's Birthing Center. While St. Luke's does not have a neonatal intensive care unit, the specialized care nursery will care for infants born as early as 32 weeks of pregnancy.

The nursery has five patient rooms that allow parents to stay with their newborns, including one room that can accommodate twins. The Level II Specialized Care Nursery cost $670,000 through the St. Luke's Foundation and individual and business donations.

“This nursery will make a big difference for those who need it,” St. Luke’s Women’s & Children’s Services Director Lori Swanson said in a news release. “If there are any issues that need to be addressed during the first days of a child’s life, the nursery allows them to be met quickly and expertly.”

The proposal would let thousands of nurses treat patients without physician oversight.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
