    I'm not sure why they would say that to you as its not true. FMC and WCH both have level 6 neonatal services (the highest level of care possible). But only FMC is a level 6 maternity hospital as it has onsite adult intensive care facilities, WCH doesn't so is a level 5 facility.

    I personally thought all hospitals would be equipped for these type of matters.
    That's what we were told.
