The Antepartum unit is comprised of three 12 bed units. Each unit has 8 provate and 2 semi-private rooms. The most frequent diagnoses associated with hospitalization include premature labor, PIH, placenta previa/abruption, PPROM, multiple gestations, diabetes, and hyperemesis. Some of our patients have long-term hospitalizations and we address both the physical and psychosocial needs of the patient and family. We provide a variety of services to long-term patients including the use of laptop computers, entertainment and educational videos, books on tape, arts and crafts, a library cart and our calendar project.

The Postpartum Units are comprised of 4 newly renovated units, each with 12 beds, 8 private and 2 semi-private rooms per pod. We provide care to all cesarean sections, high risk postpartum patients, and normal vaginal deliveries. This unit has a central nursery area for procedures, i.e. lab draws and circumcisions. Couplet care is the care delivery model for postpartum. Lactation consultants are available to facilitate breastfeeding and teach the nursing staff. We have a MILC team which is comprised of staff members who have additional training as lactation counselors to provide assistance to breastfeeding mothers when a lactation consultant is not available.

The GYN/Female surgical unit opened in January, 2003. This is a 12 bed unit comprised of 6 private and 3 semi-private rooms and an exam room. The population on this unit is primarily surgical GYN post-operative patients, i.e. hysterectomy, bladder sling, AP repair. The average daily census on the unit is 10. The general staffing pattern is for 2 RN’s and 1 HUS/PCA for 12 hour shifts. When the census drops on this unit, the staff may float to med/surg or to postpartum or antepartum. This unit maintains a small community feel in a large facility and the staff on this unit does self scheduling.
