What to Expect
Our triage area is where you will be evaluated for labor. It is a 3 bed area with solid walls between and a curtain for privacy. Once you have been admitted to the hospital you will be transferred to a private labor room. Our spacious labor rooms are specially designed to meet the needs of laboring women, new babies and their families. After the baby is born you will be transferred to our couplet care area where you will have a private room/bath shared with your baby. One adult can spend the night with you. There is a pull out couch available and linens will be provided.
The labor and delivery unit has two cesarean section suites and a recovery room where mother and baby can stay together.
