Birth Center Expansion
Upstate has just completed phase one of their new family birth center
Phase one include unveiling 12 spacious, private, post-partum suites with spacious bathrooms and showers. Suites also have a large family area with a pullout couch for a loved one to stay comfortably nearby.
Upon it's total completion, expected in summer of 2018, the three-phase project will result in:
- A total of 21 spacious, private, post-partum suites
- Extra care nursery with state-of-the-art technology. If a baby has to be away from their mother for any reason, the mother can be assured that the specially trained staff and this newly designed and upgraded area will ensure their baby is safe. The nursery has accommodations for moms to stay with their baby.
- Family lounge with comfortable furniture, a fireplace, a kitchenette with a microwave and refrigerator and vending machines. This new space will allow families to remain nearby by mother and baby get their rest.
The new post-partum area will further enhance the birth experience at Upstate’s Family Birth Center, which features six, private, spa-like labor and delivery suites with large Jacuzzi tubs, and two surgical delivery rooms for obstetric complications and Cesarean deliveries.
