COVID-19 and Pregnancy - An Update for our Patients
We would like to take this opportunity to update you about your maternity care during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, and assure you that our dedicated team of expert nurses, physicians and midwives are committed to providing safe and effective care to every patient who walks through our doors.
We understand the decision to have a baby is one of the biggest decisions you will ever make. Once you are pregnant, you are faced with another major decision — where to give birth. It is important to select a maternity hospital where you feel comfortable and where you have the childbirth options you are looking for.
Delivering more than 1,300 babies each year, our Women’s and Children's Center team is adept at anticipating and acting on your needs so you can stay focused on the task at hand. Our team is comprised of not only experienced, board-certified obstetricians, but also maternal-fetal medicine specialists, neonatal nurse practitioners, board-certified neonatologists, and anesthesiologists. Our nurses are experienced in labor and delivery and baby care and we also have midwives and board-certified lactation consultants. In additional, our physical therapy department has licensed female therapists to help you through various ailments during and after pregnancy.
We have been recognized by Healthgrades as a recipient of the 2020 Labor and Delivery Excellence Award™ for superior clinical care of women during and after childbirth. In addition, as a Texas Ten Step designated hospital, we are dedicated to improving health outcomes for lactating women and their infants through evidence-based practices.
