Lourdes is pleased to present our newly re-designed Women's & Children's Center. We have expanded our Perinatal and Pediatric Services to include a hospital unit just for women. In recognition of the special needs of women and children, Lourdes provides a comforting environment where growth and healing can take place. Our belief is that the family is the basic unit of society and what strengthens the family, strengthens society as a whole.
Lourdes Birthing Center
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.*
