Meriter's Center for Perinatal Care
The Center for Perinatal Care provides specialized care for high-risk pregnancies like twins and multiples, gestational diabetes, genetic conditions and substance dependency challeges. The new Center opened in January 2014 and offers high-tech ultrasound rooms and our one room model of care which focuses on a more comfortable experience for patients. The Center for Perinatal Care is located on the main level (2nd Floor) of Meriter Hospital.
With generous community support, Meriter completed a multi-year renovation and expansion of the Women's Health wing. The Birthing Center renovation encompassed improvements to three floors of the North Wing of the hospital.
Our new inpatient Birthing Center features:
· 13 Labor and Delivery Rooms, including 2 water birth suites· 3 C-Section surgical and recovery rooms· 48 Post Partum Rooms (after delivery), adding 11 more patient rooms· Intermediate Care Nursery, a 6-bed unit for NICU “graduates” who require additional attention
A gift today will make a difference for expectant mothers facing the uncertainity of a high-risk pregnancy and help us offer the highest level of care to the thousands of mothers and babies who depend on Meriter every year.
