Our Approach

Pregnancy is a joyous, exciting and sometimes uncertain journey, therefore a caring atmosphere close to home can make all the difference. We're here to make the most memorable nine months of your life go smoothly and help your pregnancy be a healthy one.

If you're having a baby, we welcome you–and your little one–to take advantage of all our amenities so many other growing families have enjoyed, including:

  • Pre-natal education classes
  • Private labor, delivery and recovery suites
  • Three C-section suites conveniently located on the maternity unit
  • 24-hour, fully staffed Well Baby Nursery
  • A Level III neonatal ICU in case your newborn needs extra care
  • Advanced electronic infant security system
  • Pull-out sleep sofa for dad or a family member
  • Free Wi-Fi internet access

Family-Centered Care

As long as your baby doesn't need special attention, he or she can stay with you for the entirety of your stay. We promote family-centered care and think it's important for the family to bond with the baby as soon as possible. But if you need a break—a rest, a shower, etc. your new bundle of joy is in good hands with our nursery staff.
