Level II Neonatal Unit
If for any reason your baby needs specialized care, the Level II Nursery is staffed with a Magnet-designated team of nurses and caregivers. The Level II Nursery offers advance newborn care for babies born at greater than 32 weeks gestation who may need 24-hour monitoring or a higher level of nursing care. Neonatologists and neonatal nurse practitioners provide 24/7 coverage.
OB Emergency Department
The OB Emergency Department is located inside Family Maternity Suites and can be accessed by taking the main elevators to the seventh floor. Our OB Hospitalist Program provides 24/7 in-house coverage for emergent deliveries and evaluation of pregnancy-related conditions after 16 weeks of pregnancy when your obstetrician's office may be closed.
If your family is complete and you are looking for permanent birth control options, Memorial Family Maternity Suites offers procedures such as permanent sterilization and insertion of long-acting reversible contraception. These procedures may be able to be performed prior to leaving the hospital. Talk with your physician before delivery to plan a procedure.
Suffering a loss during pregnancy can be extremely difficult for the family. The grieving process varies with each individual, but Family Maternity Suites is here to care for you during this difficult time. CuddleCots™ allow grieving parents to spend time with their baby to form that important bond as they cope with the loss. Staff help provide mementos and cherished keepsakes if the family desires.
