|Obstetrics and Gynecology|
Each year in Good Samaritan's BirthPlace, more than 3,000 infants are welcomed into the world. A talented group of physicians, nurses and support staff are responsible for the mother and newborn's well being. Accommodations are modern, family-centered and attractive. The oversized room is the setting for the labor, delivery and recovery of the birthing experience. Following delivery, the infant is placed by the mother's bedside so that the vital bonding process can begin.
Expectant mothers who have been classified with a high-risk pregnancy because of factors such as premature labor, maternal medical complications (i.e. diabetes or cardiac) or multiple pregnancies are cared for through the Maternal Fetal Medicine Program.
