Our Unit:

The Maternity Department has 2 LDRPs (Labor, Delivery, Recovery & Post-Partum). These modern comfortable suites allow patients to stay in the same room for their entire stay. They include a recliner for dads or other support person to sleep in. Security and safety are top priorities so the maternity unit doors are always locked and 24 hour video surveillance is used. After delivery, matching ID bands are placed on the mom, dad, and baby. We encourage parents to keep their babies in their room with them but Nursery staff is always available to take care of your baby at your request.

Tours of the Maternity unit are given during Childbirth Class or can be scheduled by calling us at 376-5602.
