Labor & Delivery
Labor & Delivery has 14 labor rooms on the unit, a 3-bed triage room and a 2-bed ante-partum non-stress testing room, three delivery rooms and two operating rooms; all located on the third floor of Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center. The staff includes highly qualified and experienced registered nurses, surgical technicians and unit secretaries.
Additionally, there is a 6-bed ante-partum section on the seventh floor. This area is designed to care for high-risk pregnancies. The ante-partum section is a quiet, restful area that allows the moms-to-be to rest and complete their pregnancy under the watchful eye of labor and delivery nurses.
As part of our Baby-Friendly initiative to enhance mother-baby bonding and support breastfeeding, your baby will be placed skin-to-skin immediately following birth. This important step allows for immediate bonding and you will find your baby will seek your breast and feed almost by instinct.
