The Moment You've Imagined

Our state-of-the-art Birth Center welcomes more than 3,200 babies each year — a job we take to heart. That so many Midlands moms prefer us and the readers of Palmetto Parent named us "Best Place to Have a Baby" tickles us pink and, well, blue!

Maternity Suites

Our large, private labor and delivery suites have a homelike look and feel, plus all the modern amenities you’re looking for.

Your Hospital Stay

We ensure you and your loved ones are comfortable during your stay by providing exceptional care, dining and service.

Midwives

We are the only Midlands hospital offering the advanced care of certified nurse midwives to expecting mothers.

Doulas

Our professionally trained doulas offer physical and emotional support during labor, delivery and postpartum.

Natural Childbirth

We respect the wishes of families seeking to limit medical intervention and support their desire for a peaceful, safe birth.

Baby's First Hour

After you meet your new bundle of joy, we take over to check fingers, toes and perform many other health assessments.

Safety

Our Birth Center is a controlled-access area that offers the additional protection of an advanced infant security system.

Special Care Nursery

Our 20-bed, Level II Special Care Nursery has the personnel, advanced equipment and capabilities to care for all infants as well as those born as early as 32 weeks. Nursing staff are specially trained in neonatal advanced life support and provide care with the support of an on-staff, board-certified neonatologist.

Infants born prior to 32 weeks are transported to the Level III Regional Referral Center at Palmetto Health Richland for highly specialized care.
