New Women's and Children's Unit
The new Family Birth Center, under construction now on the hospital’s third floor, will be located inside an all-new Women’s and Children’s Unit. Scheduled to open spring 2018, the unit also will include an obstetrical surgical suite; a post-anesthesia care unit; a Level II nursery; and eight suites for women’s health and pediatrics.
Services will include gynecological procedures, such as hysterectomies, and care for overnight pediatric patients with such diagnoses as dehydration, RSV, asthma and appendicitis. In addition, there will be a pediatric treatment room for lab draws, weight checks and other general procedures, and a lactation lounge open to patients and employees.
