Our Labor & Delivery and Mother/Baby units offer comprehensive maternity services, including:

Anesthesia service. Available 24/7

Collaboration with perinatologists. We have specialized care for high-risk pregnancies.

Family-centered care.

Lactation consultants. Available every day to assist with breastfeeding.

Level III NICU. Our neonatal intensive care unit staff cares for babies born as early as 30 weeks or who need specialized care.

Neonatal nurse practitioners. Available 24/7

Private operating rooms. The operating rooms and labor rooms are on same floor.

Private suites. Your room has WiFi, a flat screen TV, DVD player and a private bathroom and shower.

Professional baby photos. You can have professional baby photos taken before you leave the hospital (at your request; separate cost).

Rooming in. Your baby can stay in your room with you. We allow as much rooming in as you wish.

Secured units. All visitors must sign in and receive a sticker before they can enter the Labor & Delivery or Mother/Baby areas. Your baby will have a security band that sounds an alarm if it loses contact with the skin, is removed, or if your baby gets too close to an exit door or elevator.

Spa room. After delivery, we invite you to use our spa room, which features low, relaxing lighting and a large tub.
