Labor & Delivery Suites
Your birth experience can come to life in one of our luxurious and spacious birthing suites. Beautifully decorated in cool comforting colors, each room contains elegant wood furnishings and your own private bathroom.
The Highest Comfort Possible
It is our goal to ensure all guests are as comfortable as possible. In coordination with your physician, our staff will assist you with everything from selecting pain relief methods to choosing to have your baby in the room with you after delivery. The right staff and facilities are here for you. Highly skilled anesthesia team members are available 24 hours a day to provide your prescribed pain relief services. After delivery, your private post-partum room allows you to welcome visitors during the hospital visitation hours. You also may choose to keep your newborn with you or in our secured and fully staffed nursery. Even dads can stay overnight at no extra charge.
Woodland Heights Medical Center has delivered more than 10,000 babies since the Hospital opened in 1918. Click on the link in the birth announcement to see the baby's webpage. We post most photographs of babies born at our hospital within 48 to 72 hours of birth with the parent’s permission.
