We have a one-to-one nurse-to-patient ratio for patients in active labor, so our nurses can spend more time at their bedside.
New moms and babies also benefit from breastfeeding support from our clinical lactation consultants before and after delivery. Families receive one-on one support as they begin breastfeeding. Once home, breastfeeding mothers are encouraged to call, e-mail or visit with the lactation consultants if they have breastfeeding challenges or questions. Also, attending our free breastfeeding support group is fun and informative. We are happy to report that 85 percent of our moms breastfeed – well above the national average.
Our pediatric hospitalist team provides another benefit to our new families. Pediatric hospitalists are pediatricians who specialize in caring for infants and children in a hospital setting. They work closely with your family doctor or pediatrician when needed. And because their offices are right here in the hospital, they are more readily available to families to provide care, answer questions and be a supportive resource to the nursing staff.
