Caring for the women of East County.
Our community is a special place. That's why caring for you is something we'll never take for granted. From new mothers and their infants to comprehensive gynecologic care for women of all ages, we are the name you can trust in East County.
Because we're unable to offer tours at this time, we have created a virtual tour for mothers-to-be who are delivering here. We hope it gives you an idea of what to expect upon arrival and helps to ease concerns.
A family-centered approach to caring for mothers and newborns.
Nationally recognized as a top maternity hospital, we put family at the center of our care. This means encouraging family members to participate in the birthing experience. We also know the value of encouraging bonding time with your baby, so you and your baby will remain together throughout your hospital stay and family can visit comfortably in our spacious labor and delivery suites.
Your labor and delivery experience is our top priority. This includes a variety of birthing options and caretakers who take your preferences and concerns into account. In addition, we:
- Are honored to be on Newsweek's Best Maternity Hospitals 2021 list as one of the best U.S. hospitals to have a baby and for high safety and quality standards
- Rank nationally in the top 10th percentile for patient satisfaction by Press Ganey
- Are proud that our C-section and episiotomy rates are among the lowest statewide
- Deliver nearly 3,000 babies every year
- Offer 48 spacious suites, including 24 postpartum delivery suites for your comfort
One-on-one breastfeeding support.
We promote breastfeeding and understand the importance of skin-to-skin contact. To ensure that your baby is feeding properly, our on-site certified lactation specialist will provide you with one-on-one assistance, seven days a week, throughout your hospital stay. For ongoing support, we offer breastfeeding support groups.
Expert care you can trust.
For newborns needing a little extra hand, we have a team of experts and specialists in our Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit to help them grow and heal. We also provide a full range of advanced services, from managing high-risk pregnancies to providing women options for vaginal birth after a cesarean (VBAC) with high success rates.
Other programs and services include:
- Cord blood banking
- Jaundice and hearing screenings for newborns
- Pediatrics unit
- Prenatal clinic
- State-of-the-art infant security
If you're delivering here, you can also access your maternity preadmission form, a birth plan worksheet to let us know your birthing wishes and other resources online.
Comprehensive gynecologic care for all stages of life.
We provide specialized treatment for women of all ages. We also know surgery can be daunting, but rest assured you’re in expert hands for a broad range of care:
- Gynecologic or reproductive cancer
- Pelvic disorders (surgical and non-surgical treatment)
- Uterine bleeding and other conditions
Minimally invasive treatment options are also available including laparoscopic and advanced robotic surgery that require only small incisions, resulting in less pain and scarring, and quicker recovery times.
