Why choose UPMC Pinnacle Memorial’s birthing facility?
Single-room maternity care for privacy, comfort and superior level of care.
Unlike many hospitals, we offer single-room maternity care. In the Family Birth Center at Memorial, you remain in one room for labor, delivery, recovery and postpartum care. Our beautiful maternity rooms are spacious enough to accommodate family members you wish to include. Plus, the rooms are warm, attractive and comfortably furnished – including a sleep sofa so father may spend the night with you and your newborn. In addition, one nursing team is responsible for the total care of you and your baby, reducing delays, duplication of effort and guaranteeing fewer disruptions and more privacy.
An unprecedented level of amenities
Not only do we offer private showers, but each room has beautiful furnishings, including a rocking chair. In addition, hairdryers, in-room refrigerators and radio/CD players are just a few of the amenities you’ll enjoy at the Family Birth Center. Each room is equipped with an Integrated Air Support Bed. The surface of the bed can be adjusted for your comfort. In addition, the system provides unparalleled back support during the labor process. But it goes beyond that. All the equipment has been hidden to ensure a warm, home-like atmosphere. Also, there is a separate lounge to accommodate friends and family members.
If complications occur, the Family Birth Center is ready to respond immediately.
Each room is outfitted with a birthing bed for delivery and recovery, and an area for neonatal evaluation, including a clinical bassinet and warmer unit. A fully equipped surgical delivery suite has been designed specifically to accommodate births that are higher risk in nature.
The Bottom Line: Family-focused care means sharing the experience.
For mothers and fathers, siblings and grandparents, the impact of childbirth is profound. That’s why the Family Birth Center at UPMC Pinnacle Memorial has been designed to include everyone in your family. And that’s why our staff is dedicated to giving you and your loved ones memories you will treasure forever.
