Special Care Nursery

  • Welcome to the Special Care Nursery at Werribee Mercy Hospital. Your baby has come to the nursery for specialised care and observation; we recognise this may be a stressful time for you and your family.

    The Special Care Nursery is managed by the Nurse Manager and is attended by a team of consultant paediatricians, midwives and nurses.



    Paediatricians visit the nursery daily to review your baby’s progress.

    Unit Manager:
    Jenny Anning

    Attending Paediatricians:
    Dr. Kevin Dunne
    Dr. Kypros Kyprianou
    Dr. Shobha Iyer
    Dr. Raj Khillan

    Please ask us if you have any concerns about your baby at any time.

    We encourage you to participate as much as possible in the care and management of your baby. Midwives and nurses will guide and support you in caring for your baby.
