Our Family-Centered Philosophy Ensures A Safe And Memorable Delivery


We strive to provide each patient with the type of delivery she desires in a secure and comforting environment. Your baby will be born in the comfort of one of our labor and delivery suites. Following delivery, you'll have a private recovery suite for quiet recuperation and for sharing precious first moments with your newborn and family. We appreciate the important role of fathers, siblings and grandparents in the childbirth experience. And, because we believe strongly in the mother/baby bond, we encourage each mother to spend the first hour with her baby before any tests are performed. We support this bonding further by advocating you and your child room together throughout your entire stay with the nurse caring for you and your baby, if you so choose.


Our Team Is Prepared To Handle Critical Situations


Our team is well-equipped to provide expert care for both routine and high-risk pregnancies. Infants who require special attention following birth are cared for with the latest technology in our special care nursery. This Level IIe nursery has extended capabilities and is a member of the premier University of Chicago Hospital Perinatal Network. In addition, more than five neonatal specialists are available 24 hours a day to give these infants the treatment and attention they deserve.
