Family-Centered Care

We are Mercy and we are here to serve you. We have the honor and privilege to provide you with a safe, comfortable and memorable experience as you welcome your baby. Our mission is to provide you with quality and service.

In our state-of-the-art unit we do provide "Single Room Maternity Care," which means you will generally stay in the same room throughout your labor, delivery, and recovery.

Our nurses, in partnership with our physician and nurse midwives, are here to anticipate your needs, earn your trust and exceed your expectations. Working as a team, we have the skills to care for you and your newborn.

  • Our nurses are certified in neonatal resuscitation and many are certified in obstetrical nursing.
  • We also have a Special Care Nursery in our unit should your baby need additional care and support.
  • We have a certified lactation consultant as well as many knowledgeable nurses on staff to help you with breastfeeding. You can get continued support at your follow-up appointment, as well as by telephone once you leave the hospital

Your spouse, partner and/or support person is welcome to remain with you during your entire stay at Mercy Medical Center.

To protect you and your baby, and offer our families-to-be added peace of mind, our unit is securely locked, requiring visitors to be let in and out by staff, and we also have a state-of-the-art security system.

To protect your privacy you will be given a password to give to family and friends to access our secure on-line birth announcement website.

Prior to your delivery time, we encourage you to have a preadmission visit and a tour of the Family BirthPlace. We also offer prenatal education, breastfeeding classes and sibling classes. Special cesarean-section classes can be arranged on an as-needed basis. Please call us at 677-2451. You may also call the director at 677-2461 at any time.

Thank you for allowing us to share in your incredible experience.
