Oak Hill Hospital Begins Obstetrics Project
SPRING HILL, Fla. — Oak Hill Hospital in Spring Hill announced on April 6 that construction of its obstetrics project is now underway. The new $13.7 million maternity suites at Oak Hill Hospital will be the most advanced maternity unit in the region by offering a full-service program in a safe and secure environment.
The new unit will be added to the 3rd floor of the new North Tower. Features of the new OB program include:
- A total of 18 suites.
- Six labor and delivery suites
- Ten post-partum recovery suites
- Two ante-partum labor suites
- A 12-positon holding nursery for babies who need special monitoring or continuous observation
- A cesarean surgical suite located in labor and delivery in the event a surgical delivery is necessary
- Lactation specialist available
- Open visitation to support family-centered care.
- Next generation technology with modern state-of-the-art amenities, including the latest industry standards for patient monitoring (both mother and baby).
- Board-certified specialty nurses and other professional support staff.
- A secure unit at all times with a strict admission policy
- Wireless fetal monitoring for patients who meet the criteria.
The architectural firm that has been chosen to oversee the project is Gould Turner Group of Nashville, Tenn. The general contractor for the project is Brasfield & Gorrie, also based in Nashville.
“Our goal is to provide the highest level of quality care and customer service to ensure the birth of your baby is a treasured memory,” Chief Operating Officer Sonia Wellman, who is the project’s manager for Oak Hill Hospital, said in a statement.
“Oak Hill Hospital follows a patient and family-centered care philosophy,” Cindy Poirier, director of women’s servicers, added in a statement. “This means for all healthy births, our goal is to keep mom and baby together as much as possible in those first precious days, so the mother may learn to take care of her baby with the help of a compassionate care team.”
With a thriving pediatric program and rapidly growing GYN robotics services, the move to provide maternity services for the community is a natural next step for Oak Hill Hospital, which completed a $52 million expansion project in January 2013. The hospital recently completed a significant renovation project for its first class of Graduate Medical Education residents, and has purchased 40 acres of land for future expansions.
Planned opening for the obstetrics project is for the end of the first quarter of 2016.
