Come as a Patient. Leave as a Family.

More than 300 families celebrate the joy of a new baby every year at NOCHS’ Family Birthing Unit. Now those families can enjoy the additional reassurance of knowing that NOCHS has received the prestigious designation of a Blue Distinction Center+ for Maternity Care.

What does that mean? First, it means that NOCHS delivers excellent quality care. Moms who plan to come to the Family Birthing Unit write up specific care plans around topics such as anesthesia preference, immunizations, cultural considerations and more. On the happy day, there’s plenty of space for mom, baby and family to be together in our large rooms. Mom is encouraged to stay with the infant 24/7, while receiving support for breastfeeding and newborn care.

The designation also means that NOCHS is a cost-effective provider. Cost efficiency comes second to quality in this designation. However, it is an important indicator for consumers and insurers alike.

If you’re thinking about expanding your family, make sure you visit the Family Birthing Unit. Find out how our wonderful staff can provide excellent care during this joyful time of life.
