About the Center

The  Joseph Family Center for Women and Newborn Care is a state-of-the-art facility designed with the needs, safety and comfort of new moms and families in mind.

The new facility, warmly decorated with photos by local photographers, includes private birthing suites, each featuring a JacuzziTM tub, and private postpartum suites. Telemetry monitors ensure baby’s safety while allowing laboring mothers to walk about, use a birthing ball, shower, or relax in the JacuzziTM. To allow for skin-to-skin contact immediately after birth, radiant heaters on the ceiling keep mom and baby warm and comfortable.

The four postpartum rooms allow moms to be close to their babies for their entire stay after the baby is born. Take a virtual tour below!
