Additional Information
All of our doors and elevators are equipped with a high-tech alarm system. At the time of birth, an electronic identification band will be placed on your child's leg. The band will automatically lock any door, elevator or exit when the baby is carried within 10 feet of it and sound an alarm. The bands are also monitored, pinpointing the baby's location at any time.

The OB visiting rules are as follows:

  • When the patient is in labor & delivery they can have visitors who are over ten years old and haven’t been ill at their discretion until they enter the 2nd stage of labor (pushing) then visitors are limited to a maximum of three who will be present during the birth  for patient safety, to support breastfeeding, bonding, and privacy guests are no longer permitted to take turns.
  • Once the patient is moved to mother baby one support person can stay 24/7.
  • Siblings of the newborn may visit from 10a to 8p provided  they are accompanied by an adult other than their mother and do not have a fever, cough, or drainage from their nose.
  • Friends and family who are at least 10 years of age and do not have a fever, cough, or drainage from their nose may visit from 10a to 8p.
  • Visitors who are not in the room are required to wait in the third floor lobby for the safety and confidentiality of all our guests and patients.
