More babies are born at TriHealth’s Good Samaritan Hospital, Cincinnati, than any other hospital in Southwest Ohio. Now, their moms and dads and families will have new, private rooms and other amenities when they welcome their babies into the world.
Phase one of the project was completed last year, when all post-partum rooms were converted to private rooms. Phase two has now been completed, with all-private rooms in the TriHealth Advanced Obstetrical Care Unit. This area is reserved for all high-risk maternity patients who require longer stays during pregnancy.
The next development is a new maternity gateway through the hospital’s Dixmyth Avenue entrance. The gateway will offer more direct access to a new, larger maternity greeting area and a new triage area where patients will come for initial assessment. Once admitted, patients will be registered at their bedside. Around-the-clock valet parking also will be available to patients.
The final phase will include renovation of the Labor and Delivery facilities. Two new critical care labor and delivery rooms will be added to provide state-of-the-art care for highest-risk deliveries. Construction is expected to finish in February 2018.
