expansion of NICU, pediatrics and women's center

Women & Children's Services Expansion

    Construction recently began on two of the new labor and delivery rooms. (See photo below)

    These beautiful rooms will be larger and brighter with a modern, family-friendly design and thoughtful amenities.
    Demolition is complete, and construction is in full swing on the fourth floor where the new NICU and Pediatric units will be located. We look forward to these enhancements to our facility.
    In addition to facility enhancements, Women & Children’s Services will immediately benefit from the addition of our new OB nurse navigator, Erin Neu, RN. Erin offers a unique level of experience as she, her husband and all ten of her children were born at Franciscan St. Francis Health. She will help patients personalize their birth experiences and get all their ducks in a row before arriving to deliver. She will also guide patients to needed resources both before and after birth.
