Fathers, siblings and other special people are encouraged to play active roles at this special time through flexible visiting hours. Our rooming-in policy allows you to keep your baby with you as much as desired.
We place identification bands on infants and parents immediately at birth. This, along with a number of other security measures, ensures the safety of you and your newborn during your hospital stay.
Nurses and patient educators are available to assist with your baby's care so you feel confident in your infant care skills prior to going home. We offer a complete breastfeeding program, including a certified lactation consultant and certified breastfeeding counselors. You will have personalized, education and support, including one-on-one assistance, if needed.
Our nurses are trained in Basic Life Support, Advanced Life Support, Pediatric Life Support, Basic Fetal Monitoring, Advanced Fetal Monitoring, Neonatal Resuscitation Program, Fetal Heart Monitoring, Pediatric Advanced Life Support and STABLE.
