The Birth Place

The Birth Place

As an expectant mother, you want your baby delivered in a facility with the highest quality of care and in a private, comfortable environment. The Birth Place at Rockdale Medical Center is a unique environment designed to soothe, comfort, and relax mothers and newborns. The expansion of the neonatal intensive care units (NICU) in February 2013 provides expectant mothers with a state-of-the-art facility to ensure you get the best possible care.

Our Level III NICU Gives Peace of Mind

As a mother with a newborn baby, you can be assured that you will get an individualized special care plan. The Birth Place’s dedicated physicians, nurses, and staff employ a team approach when caring for you and your newborn. Our Level III NICU provides peace of mind when newborns need specialized care from our neonatologists and specially trained NICU nurses. Designed to reflect the “family-centered care” concept, the NICU allows you to remain with your infant and permits your families to stay close by for support. And to give you the best possible care, we take into account every detail including softer lighting and sound-absorbing floors.

With the $5.5 million expansion of our NICU in 2013, we provide:

  • Level III NICU with 20 rooms and private family waiting areas
  • 17 upgraded labor-and-delivery rooms and bathrooms
  • Two dedicated surgical procedure rooms, a recovery room, and a four-bed triage room
  • Specialized care from our neonatologists and specially trained NICU nurses
