Private Birthing Suites

The Mark G. Collson Birthing Center features private birthing suites, each with an in-room Jacuzzi tub, a pull-out bed for your significant other, soft colors and comfortable furnishings. A large closet in each birthing suite keeps extra equipment hidden until delivery time. Then, all but C-section deliveries may be safely completed in the birthing suite. If a C-section is necessary, a fully equipped surgical suite is just steps away.

New moms, friends and family will enjoy free WiFi internet, and a complementary celebration meal is provided to each mom and her primary support person.
