Three infants have died from a waterborne infection at the Neonatal Intensive care unit at Geisinger Medical Center near Danville and five other infants were treated for the illness.

Out of an abundance of caution, Geisinger is temporarily diverting mothers likely to deliver prematurely to other regional institutions in Pennsylvania with appropriate NICU capabilities.

Geisinger says it will continue its meticulous and comprehensive infection control practices at the  Danville NICU to reduce the risk of any infection in any infant, and they remain committed to providing the highest level of neonatal care for area families and babies.
