Pregnancy and Childbirth  

The birth of your child is truly a miracle, and we do our best to help that miracle along. From advanced technologies and comfortable labor and delivery rooms to understanding the needs of family and friends, we're focused on making sure your delivery is as smooth and comfortable as possible.

 Labor and Delivery

You will labor and deliver in a labor and delivery room (LDRs). Each room is discreetly equipped with advanced technology. These spacious rooms allow for care to be brought to you and your baby throughout your delivery.

If your physician needs to deliver your baby by Caesarean birth (abdominal incision), the procedure will take place in an obstetrical operating room within the labor and delivery area. In most cases, your support person will be able to attend the birth and the baby will remain with you immediately after delivery.

New Family Unit

  •  Private rooms for every new mom and a sleeping space for your partner
  • Babies room-in  with mom during this time while nursing staff assist  in teaching  skin to skin contact and offer assistance with breastfeeding
  • Ongoing educational support, including a lactation program with private consultation available

Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)

Our NICU provides the highest level of care available. This means we are able to provide advanced life-support services and technologies for premature and seriously ill newborns.

Staffed by specialized nurses, neonatal nurse practitioners, neonatologists and many other skilled staff, the unit is designed to promote optimal developmental care for sick infants.

Family-centered care is our priority in the NICU. For your convenience and comfort, we offer:

  • Open visitation so that parents can visit anytime
