Labor and Delivery

Donalsonville Hospital offers an up-to-date, family oriented obstetrical and gynecological unit that opened in October 2001.  This addition to the original hospital provides a unique birthing experience where labor, delivery, post-partum and newborn care are provided by the same unified staff.

The 10,320 square feet unit includes:

2 delivery rooms
6 beautifully decorated postpartum rooms
C-Section Surgical Room
Level 1 Newborn Nursery with viewing window

The L&D Unit is a very "family-oriented" unit and encourages rooming-in with the baby.  However, the Level 1 Nursery provides excellent care for healthy newborns.  Transfer arrangements to higher level Nurseries are in place if transfers are needed for infants in distress. 

Our Medical and Nursing Staff are certified in Neonatal Resuscitation, ACLS, and Fetal Monitoring to ensure quality patient care at this facility.
