Lourdes Birthing Center

Having a baby is one of the most sacred moments in life. You need a hospital that is attentive to your individual choices for your baby's birth, a place where doctors, midwives and nurses support you and your family in developing a birthing plan to create your own personalized birthing experience. That is what you will find at The Birthing Center at Lourdes.

When you choose to have your baby at Lourdes, you become a part of our family-centered approach to maternity care.  Lourdes offers you a highly trained, caring, maternity team with years of experience in delivering healthy babies.  We consider birth as a profound emotional, social, and spiritual event and the care we provide touches the entire family.  All of our nurses are certified in Neonatal Resuscitation. We want to get to know you and your family and be there for you from prenatal education right through delivery. Our facility provides a home-like environment.  Each of our 11 birthing suites allows the family to experience the entire process of labor, delivery, and recovery in one spacious, PRIVATE room.  At Lourdes we offer you a private room throughout your entire stay. Calm and relaxation prevail in all aspects of care.

Lourdes Hospital has received the Blue Distinction Center+ for Maternity Care designation, a new designation under the Blue Distinction Specialty Care program.

Blue Distinction Centers+ are healthcare facilities recognized for their expertise and efficiency in delivering specialty care.*

*Blue Distinction Centers (BDC) met overall quality measures for patient safety and outcomes, developed with input from the medical community. A Local Blue Plan may require additional criteria for facilities located in its own service area; for details, contact your Local Blue Plan. Blue Distinction Centers+ (BDC+) also met cost measures that address consumers’ need for affordable healthcare. Each facility’s cost of care is evaluated using data from its Local Blue Plan. Facilities in CA, ID, NY, PA, and WA may lie in two Local Blue Plans’ areas, resulting in two evaluations for cost of care; and their own Local Blue Plans decide whether one or both cost of care evaluation(s) must meet BDC+ national criteria. National criteria for BDC and BDC+ are displayed on Individual outcomes may vary. For details on a provider’s in-network status or your own policy’s coverage, contact your Local Blue Plan and ask your provider before making an appointment.
