Choosing your physician and your birthing center are two of the most important decisions you will make. Here’s what you need to know about us. Our staff values the entire family. We have programs for dads, moms, and children that are about to have a new brother or sister. Our birthing center is the place where families grow, and we know a happy family makes a happy mom!
Memorial Hospital is a U.S. News and World Report Best Hospital. We designed our state-of-the-art birthing rooms with your home in mind. We want you to be comfortable, and our caring staff of doctors and nurses will provide you with unmatched care.
Here’s something else you should know about us. We were the first hospital in the area to have OB Hospitalists onsite 24/7. Why is that important? Well, we have an OB here every minute of the day. So, no matter what time you deliver, you won’t have to wait for a doctor. This is something that should make moms-to-be feel more secure.
An OB Hospitalist is an obstetrician that is onsite 24/7. Memorial Hospital was the first hospital in the area to offer this round-the-clock coverage. The OB Hospitalist is immediately available throughout the day and night to examine patients, evaluate the progress of labor, react to laboratory abnormalities, and provide a safe delivery. As your doctor travels from their office to the hospital, there is no delay if they get caught in a traffic jam or have car trouble.
If an emergency occurs, the OB Hospitalist is already on the scene, ready to respond with lifesaving intervention. The presence of a doctor full-time in Labor and Delivery improves patient safety because the OB Hospitalist is available at the hospital whenever they are needed. They can respond immediately to patient needs for anesthesia, can provide comfort and reassurance to an anxious family, are able to evaluate worrisome fetal heart rate tracings, and stay on top of any problem that may evolve.
Wirless Monitoring Technology
Memorial Hospital is proud to offer wireless monitoring technology for mothers in labor. The bluetooth technology allows our moms to walk around or even take a shower while in labor, which can provide relief from contractions, bring comfort and offer new moms another option for their birthing experience.
