Our Services

For our low-risk patients, we offer a minimal intervention approach. You can choose to:

  • Walk during labor
  • Receive intermittent monitoring
  • Use pain-management alternatives, such as hydrotherapy and nitrous oxide

Through shared decision-making with our patients, we are able to keep our interventions low; we have a primary C-section rate of 22 percent and an episiotomy rate of 4 percent.

Our specialized facilities include:

  • Labor and delivery suite: Our state-of-the-art technology includes a central fetal monitoring unit that allows your providers to watch your baby’s heart rate and your contractions from anywhere on the floor.
  • Postpartum units: We make it easy to keep your baby in your room with you, but also offer a newborn nursery. We’ll teach you and your family about baby care, breast care, and self-care.
  • Neonatal intensive care unit: Should the need arise, we have everything you need, including advanced electronic monitoring devices, mechanical ventilators, and incubators.
