Wesley Birth Care Suites, which opened September 1996, is designed to blend the science of medicine with the art of care.
Wesley Birth Care Suites is a freestanding center with 20 birthing suites and two obstetric operative suites, as well as supporting delivery services available for expectant families. The facility, which was remodeled in 2017, is just north of the Wesley campus. Resident involvement and participation is integral to this facility. Labor delivery and recovery, and the subsequent stay all take place in the same comfortable room where mother and baby stay together. Each suite includes a family room and private bathroom in addition to the mother's room. Caregiver beds are provided in each suite for family and friends to stay overnight. The facility provides a playroom for young siblings and a comfortable lobby where additional family members can await your baby's arrival. Expectant moms who are 37 weeks and without complications and who think they may be in labor - or their water has broken - may deliver at Wesley Birth Care Suites. PGY-2 residents manage laboring patients. The center functions similar to an outside tertiary center while still having the resources and capabilities of the largest delivery service in the region.
On-site Obstetric Anesthesia and several operating suites, as well as Neonatal Services, are immediately available. Mother and baby have the same room for the whole birth and recovery process. Bonding and breastfeeding are encouraged and nursing staff provides education and support. All of the technology of modern medicine is carefully blended with respect for one of the most intimate events in a patient's life. Approximately one third of the deliveries occur in this low-risk obstetrical unit.
