Labor & Delivery
We combine personal attention only a smaller hospital can offer with quality medical care for you and your newborn. Our private birthing rooms have a homelike appearance, while being fully equipped medical units. A trained OB nurse is available 24 hours a day to provide care in prenatal testing, labor and deliver and OB emergencies. If a Cesarean birth is necessary, our surgical team is prepared to respond.

After delivery, mothers and babies stay together in one room so they can bond in a relaxed, quiet atmosphere. Most families stay for at least 24 hours. A mother/baby nurse is close by to help and answer any questions you may have during your stay.
