Spacious rooms, state-of-the-art equipment, trained nursing staff and calming environment are all part of making the birthing experience at the Birth and Infant Care Center a positive experience.
Soft, soothing colors, large patient rooms and a homey décor combine to form a less clinical atmosphere for patients and their families, though not at the expense of technology. The framed artwork hanging above patient beds, for example, conceals monitoring equipment that can be used at a moment's notice.
"The Birth and Infant Care Center is a wonderful addition to the hospital that we can all be proud of," says Dr. David Holdt, an obstetrician/gynecologist with the Women’s Center. "We feel very fortunate to have such a facility in our area for OB and newborn care—patient response has been very positive."
The center has four labor and delivery rooms where women labor and deliver in the same spacious room and three triage rooms. Each of the eleven post-partum rooms features a private bathroom with bidet, bathtub and shower. A surgical suite for c-sections is also located in the center.
The Birth and Infant Care Center reflects the strong commitment of Regional West Medical Center and the area physicians to have an up-to-date birthing service in the panhandle area for the 21st century.
