Steps to ensure your safety
Our COVID-19 response ensures that every person entering the hospital and clinics is screened for temperature and respiratory illness symptoms. Universal masking is in place for all patients, visitors, and employees. Exam rooms and waiting areas receive extra cleanings and we have created physical distancing between patients.
Comforts of home
Our family birthing suites feature refrigerators, televisions, CD players, soaking tubs, and large private showers – some with beautiful views of the mountains and water.
Your partner or spouse is encouraged to stay with you throughout your labor and delivery. Your baby will room in with you, and siblings are always welcome when accompanied by an adult.
Soaking tubs for hydrotherapy; telemetric fetal monitoring, so you can walk and have a high level of mobility during fetal monitoring; and nurse anesthetists fully trained in pain management approaches.
Free childbirth classes cover early and active labor, comfort measures, pain management, newborn care, early parenthood, breast feeding and baby safety. Learn more
A midwife or trained doula may be present during labor and initial transitional support. The midwife/trained doula will be in addition to the consistent support partner. It is expected that the midwife/trained doula wear appropriate PPE (hospital provided) and strictly follow visitation guidelines.
