WellSpan York Hospital has 12 labor and delivery rooms. Each is designed for your care during labor and birth. The rooms all have a private bathroom with a shower as well as a rocking chair and a sleep chair. If you are scheduled to have a Cesarean birth, we have three Cesarean delivery rooms and a recovery room within the labor and delivery unit.
After delivery, you and your baby will move to our beautiful Mother-Infant Center, which features 43 spacious, bright and cheerfully decorated private rooms. Each room offers:
- Roomy bathroom with shower and hairdryer
- Bedside controls for lights, television and telephone
- Special areas for "primping" and display of cards and flowers
- Comfortable, convertible sleep-sofa for dads
- Data port with wireless access
At the Mother-Infant Center, your newborn's safety is a top priority. Your newborn will remain in your direct care and supervision in your room or with a nurse in the Newborn Nursery. Video cameras, monitored at the nurses' station, track all coming and going on the unit. Mother-Infant Center staff members all wear easily recognizable photo identification badges, and any new caregivers will be introduced to you by your nurse.
