Opened new in 2008, the “Family Maternity Services” Unit provides six birthing suites with a Labor-Delivery-Recovery-Postpartum (LDRP) concept.  Therefore, you can stay in the same room from the time of admission until you are discharged.  Sleeping accommodations for family members or close friends are available in the same room.  Your newborn can stay with you in the room the entire length of your stay, or you may choose to utilize our Nursery services when needed.

A Intermediate (Level II) Nursery is available for infants who require more intense observation or additional support.

The Unit is staffed completely with Registered Nurses who are specially trained in Neonatal Care.

Additional services provided for new and expectant parents include:
