MidMichigan Medical Center – West Branch Maternity Unit is now open and ready to welcome moms and babies to the beautifully renovated space. The more than $2 million of improvements and equipment purchases creates a comfortable, state-of the-art, family-focused place for women to give birth.
The new unit features four private birthing suites where moms can stay in one location throughout their hospital stay, from labor and delivery through recovery and postpartum care and three postpartum/triage rooms. What’s more, the new unit features a state-of-the art operating room for caesarian sections; a nursery for when babies need monitoring or special procedures; a high-tech security system; and in-room amenities such as large screen TVs, a sleeping couch for the mother’s support person and refrigerators for patients to keep their favorite refreshments close at hand.
