The Women's Center welcomes expectant parents and their families. We offer a wealth of nursing experience and education for new moms.
The Women's Center offers care for women of all ages. We care for women with normal or problem pregnancies before and after they give birth. We also care for women having surgery or other health issues.
When labor begins
We have five labor/delivery/recovery rooms (LDRs). When a mom-to-be arrives in labor, she will be checked into one of these rooms. If admitted, she will stay in this room through delivery and will usually be moved to postpartum care in about two hours.
Our priority is babies, babies, babies! We have 16 nursery cribs, and most families like our rooming-in policy. The center averages 75 deliveries a month.
We have a level 2 special care nursery with four beds next to the well-baby nursery. We, along with our pediatricians, provide special care for a newborn if he or she is ill, born prematurely or just needs a little help getting started in this big world.
The postpartum area is adjacent to the LDRs. The new mom will stay there until she is discharged. Families are encouraged to bond with their new family member—and this room is perfect for that. The postpartum area has five private rooms and three semiprivate rooms.
We recommend that you choose a pediatrician to care for your newborn while he or she is in the hospital.
