Innovations

Methodist Women's Hospital is the only hospital in the region to offer the following health innovations.  

ACLS & ACLS-OB certified nurses

Because our patients’ health and safety is our number one priority, 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.

You will likely never need this level of care, but isn’t it nice to know that your nurses have been trained to manage the most complicated situations in case of emergency?

Dedicated Prep/Recovery rooms for C-section families

We have created a facility that allows moms and babies to stay together whenever medically possible, including after most C-sections. Three specially designed prep/recovery rooms are available to C-section families. If mother and baby are stable after delivery, they can recover together in the same room, which is spacious enough to accommodate both of them, their caregivers, the baby warmer and family members eager to meet the newest addition.

Physician certification in electronic fetal monitoring

Electronic fetal monitoring (EFM) is a technology commonly used in the obstetric setting to assess the baby's well-being during labor. To ensure the highest level of expertise in the use of EFM to keep mother and baby safe, at Methodist Women's Hospital not only have all of our labor and delivery and high risk ob nurses passed the national exam and obtained a certificate of added qualification in EFM, but also every Methodist Health System physician who delivers babies at Methodist Women’s Hospital is certified in this specialty.

Omaha’s largest OB-GYN practice

Because we’re dedicated to women’s health, we’re delighted to have the Methodist Physicians Clinic Women's Center — the largest OB-GYN practice in the metro area — right next door in the attached medical office building. You can come to one campus for all of your gynecological and women’s health needs, including counseling, pelvic pain, sexual wellness, physical therapy and skin renewal services.

West Omaha’s only Level III NICU

Our 36-bed Level III neonatal intensive care unit, the highest level NICU in west Omaha, alleviates the shortage of beds in the region for at-risk babies. In its first full year of operation, the Methodist Women's Hospital Neonatal ICU was the busiest in the area.
