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.

September is Newborn Screening Awareness month

What is newborn screening?

When your baby is 1 to 2 days old, he has some special tests called newborn screening.   Newborn screening checks a baby for serious but rare and mostly treatable health conditions at birth. It includes blood, hearing and heart screening. 

Your baby can be born with a health condition but may not show any signs of the problem at first. If a health condition is found early with newborn screening, it often can be treated. Early treatment is important, because it may help prevent more serious health problems for your baby.

 

Comments from previous patients

Such great doctors and midwives. They made me feel comfortable.

If we needed anything they were always at the ready to help.

My baby had to stay a extra 5 days after he was born and the nurses always let me have as much time as I wanted with him. They were all amazing and I am very grateful for ALL of them.

All the nurses on the maternity ward were amazing. Especially *Morgan, *Lori and *Pam!

 

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
