Prenatal Center

We all hope to have a healthy pregnancy, but for some prospective parents pregnancy can be a time of unexpected health problems or concerns. Some birth parents or babies have serious medical problems during pregnancy and need specialists to care for them. Others may need to be monitored closely in the hospital to prevent complications.

The prenatal center provides a team of doctors to care for patients who are hospitalized due to pregnancy complications. Pregnant people are admitted here if their doctors feel they need services that are not available on an outpatient basis. Some patients may be transferred here from their community hospital.

Inpatients may attend any of our parent education programs at no cost, watch movies from our DVD selection and select crafts from our craft cart. If there is anything we can do to make your stay more comfortable, please let your nurse know.
