It’s one of the most important life events you and your family will ever experience. That's why the staff of Passavant Area Hospital's Family Maternity Suites wants to meet your special and individual needs. At Passavant Family Maternity Suites, you receive personalized care in a comfortable setting to provide you with a warm and pleasant experience as you welcome your baby into the world.
You will labor, deliver and recover in the same room. To provide a quieter, more relaxing atmosphere, you will then move to a private post-partum suite.
We concentrate on what's really important – the birth of your child. And when your baby arrives, we encourage you to keep your child in your room as much as you desire – day and night – to help you establish a warm and nurturing relationship.
Level II Nursery
If for any reason your baby is in the Level II Nursery, requiring more comprehensive care, there are special guidelines for visiting:
- Only parents may visit with the infant.
- All visitors in the Level II Nursery must wash hands prior to visiting the infant.
Our designation as a Baby-Friendly Hospital means we provide optimal care for mothers who want to breastfeed their newborns. This international honor demonstrates we adhere to the highest standards of care for breastfeeding mothers and their babies.
