What is a Level III NICU?

Babies at our NICU facility receive pasteurized donor breast milk from a milk bank. Donated breast milk is a way for babies to get the nutrition they need.
Marshfield Medical Center's breast milk depot program accepts breast milk donations that help NICU babies in need across the country.
