Our emphasis is on exceptional medical care.
Although your room is comfortably homelike, all necessary medical equipment and expertise is right there too, accessible in an instant. The Birth Place is equipped with state-of-the-art maternal and newborn monitoring systems with a well-baby and neonatal intensive care nursery.
Our Level II NICU has single-family rooms equipped with incubators, ventilators and specialized monitoring equipment to care for sick and premature newborn infants born at 32 weeks gestational age or greater, as well as full-term babies who need extra support. The Level II NICU staff includes RNs specially trained in the care of high-risk newborns, neonatal nurse practitioners and board-certified neonatologists.
Anesthesia services are available within the hospital 24 hours a day, and Cesarean deliveries can be performed in the surgical suites within The Birth Place. Multiple security measures are in place to ensure the safety and security of our patients and their families throughout their stay.
It all begins with the right doctors.
A positive childbirth experience at The Birth Place begins with your choice of doctor. In addition to our highly-trained physicians and staff at The Birth Place, we have neonatal nurse practitioners, around-the-clock, with specialized training of care for newborns who are at risk or experiencing difficulties after delivery. They help provide an extra layer of security and comfort for staff and patients on-site. While most deliveries result in a healthy, thriving baby, it is reassuring to parents and staff to know that if an emergency should arise, there are specialists available in the nursery 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
