The Birth Place

Rockdale Medical Center is proud to annouce the completion of one of the region’s finest Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICU) in February 2013.  Our $5.5 million expansion of The Birth Place assures that mothers in Rockdale, Newton and surrounding counties can deliver babies closer to home in a beautiful, state-of-the-art facility that provides the highest quality of care.

Located in our stunning East Tower, The Birth Place at Rockdale Medical Center is a unique environment designed to soothe, comfort and relax mothers and newborns. Sunny atriums, lush gardens and bubbling fountains lead you to The Birth Place, where private rooms are decorated in soft colors and filled with the comforts of home. In addition to the new NICU, the expansion includes an upgrade of our 17 labor-and-delivery rooms and bathrooms, two new surgical procedure rooms, a recovery room and a four-bed triage room. We also have 28 lovely mother-baby rooms built as part of the East Tower construction in 2005.  

The Birth Place’s dedicated physicians, nurses and staff employ a team approach that assures every mother and baby gets individualized special care plans. 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 mothers to remain with their infants and permits families to stay close by for support. It also features softer lighting and sound-absorbing floors. Rest assured that you can have your baby close to home and get the best possible care.
