    The Birth Center was renovated in September 2013 to provide a warm and welcoming environment to our patients, visitors and staff.  The renovation offered large, private Labor & Delivery rooms each with state-of-the-art fetal monitoring equipment and a private rest room, private Post-Partum rooms each with a private rest room, an enlarged Newborn Nursery featuring all new equipment, convenient Nurses Station and Physician Dictation room. 

    Are we proud to bring in new life?  We play a lullaby over our speaker system to welcome them to their new world.
