Our Women’s and Newborns center has 4 labor and deliver rooms, an operating room suite and a triage room. The unit is staffed with RNs in labor and delivery and RNs and LVNs on our 6 bed mother/baby unit. We have an infant security system to ensure the safety of our newborns. The unit provides childbirth classes, hearing screening for all babies, and certified lactation consultants are on staff. We provide certification opportunities for S.T.A.B.L.E. and P.A.L.S. for nurses within the department and require these be completed by the sixth month of employment with UMH.
