The Maternity Department Welcomes All New Mothers 

 

Visitation: Warren General Hospital is limiting visitation to the hours 2pm-6pm and only having 1 visitor at a time.  The maternity department will allow the father of the baby (or support person) to be present outside of these hours and involved in the labor and delivery of the baby. We ask that all other visitors come during the visitation hours set by WGH and only immediate family come to visit. We ask if anyone has any symptoms of any illness to stay away so we can protect our patients and staff.

Donnie and Tonya Rosie Testimonial | WGH

“We had all four of our children at Warren General Hospital. We had a good experience and we have recommended the hospital to our friends who are expecting children. It was a great  environment and we had a good relationship with the staff. We didn’t feel like a number and they seemed happy to help and made us feel a part of the decision process in a relaxed setting.”   ~ Donnie & Tonya Rosie
