Women with high-risk pregnancies may need specialty help and observation in maintaining their pregnancy and give birth to babies that are closer to full-term. Women & Infants offers a 30-bed Antenatal Care Unit (ACU) on the fourth floor of the South Pavilion.
If admitted to the unit, women are cared for by the hospital’s internationally renowned maternal-fetal medicine and obstetric medicine specialists. Services are coordinated in an environment that encourages partnership with the patients’ community obstetricians and their families.
The Antenatal Care Unit features private rooms that are larger and offer space for loved ones to spend the night, and private bathrooms with showers.
The floor also offers an amenities suite to help pamper women who can be on bed rest for weeks leading up to childbirth. There is a professionally equipped hairdressing salon area for private hairdressers to use during their patient visits, a massage room, space for alternative therapies, a washer and dryer, and exercise equipment for family members and patients who have their physician’s approval.
