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.
