About Your Stay

The best care for mother and baby

Amenities for you and your family

Large private rooms

Private mother/baby rooms include a combination of homey and hotel-style in-room amenities:
  • Flat screen TV with DVD player
  • Refrigerator for personal use
  • Family spaces with comfortable sleep sofas
  • Comfortable seating for visitors
  • Wireless Internet access throughout the facility
  • Convenient, hidden power outlets to keep personal electronics charged and ready
  • In-room safe for valuables
  • Storage areas, wardrobe, coat hooks, luggage rack

Safe and spacious bathroom

The large, easy-access bathroom features handicap rails, adjustable showerhead, hair dryer and motion-sensor lighting.

The floor was designed without a shower lip so moms in wheelchairs can roll from the bed to the shower on a level surface

24-hour food service

Although during labor you will be restricted on your food and water for safety, your support person and family will be able to use our around-the-clock food service for snacks and meals.

Family areas

Throughout the hospital family lounges feature quiet, relaxing areas for your family and friends to gather. The Methodist Women's Hospital also features a chapel and outdoor healing garden.

 

Safety for you and your new baby

ACLS-OB certification

Every nurse on staff is certified in Advanced Cardiac Life Support. ACLS-certified nurses are specially-trained to provide the clinical interventions necessary for urgent treatment of cardiac arrest and other medical emergencies.

All Women's Hospital nurses in Labor & Delivery, Mother/Baby and High-Risk OB units are also ACLS-OB certified with additional specialty training in the emergency treatment of pregnant or newly delivered women.

Same-sided room design

Every mother/baby room is designed with equipment and features in the same place. This design allows staff to quickly access equipment in the same location in every room.

In-room medical equipment

Wall cabinets store the labor and delivery procedure and treatment cart, medical supplies, linens and laundry. The equipment, while out of sight, is within easy reach of the staff when needed.

Full medical emergency support

Adult ICU
In case of emergency, rooms are large enough for an entire code team to care for mother and baby.  An adult intensive care unit at Methodist Women’s Hospital is available to care for patients with critical medical needs.

All Women’s Hospital supervisors and select staff are ICU-trained and continually rotate through to keep critical care skills sharp.

Code Blue / Code Pink
Easily-accessed Code Blue and Code Pink buttons to call the code team in the event mother or baby needs urgent care.
