Family Birthing Center
That's the review we've been getting from a $5 million expansion and remodeling of our Family Birthing Center. The Center features all-private Birthing Suites and an all-private room Mother-Baby Care unit where new families share their first moments together.
In our new Mother-Baby Care unit, 25 beautifully decorated, all private, home-like rooms are designed for the comfort of new families. Modern conveniences and amenities are included to make your stay restful and stress-free. There's a fold-out bed to accommodate fathers who want to stay overnight, a spa-like shower to help relax mom, and a built-in desk with WIFI access so families can stay connected with loved ones.
Community Hospital's Family Birthing Center is specially designed to accommodate mothers, babies and families in each unique stage of the birthing experience. Your stay begins in one of eight Birthing Suites especially equipped for labor and delivery of the baby.
These suites provide the comforts of home including a television, recliner, desk and private bathroom. After a period of recovery following delivery, moms are transferred to our Mother-Baby Care unit. Here, moms can put the labor process behind them, getting to know their new baby and sharing their new joy with family and friends.
Community Hospital delivers about 2,400 babies per year, making the hospital the most experienced in the area and one of the leading facilities in the state for newborn care. The hospital offers specialized care in a Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit - the highest level of care available for newborns. A full-time staff of fellowship-trained neonatologists, neonatal nurses, respiratory, occupational, physical and speech therapists, provides intensive intervention for infant with special medical needs. The 16-bed Neonatal Intensive Care unit offers the assurance that, should specialized care be necessary, it is available immediately at birth. The Family Birthing Center also offers an outpatient testing room and high-risk rooms for mothers who may need additional monitoring during pregnancy.
