Located on the fourth floor of our Toll Pavilion, the suite has 22 specially designed and equipped labor/delivery/recovery (LDR) rooms. The unit is named in honor of the Women's Board of Abington – Jefferson Health, in recognition of its generous gift to the hospital's expansion program.
Expectant mothers deliver and recover in the comfort of our spacious, home-like birthing suites. Rooms are designed with all of the state-of-the-art medical equipment needed for a safe delivery. There are modern birthing beds in each room, which enable a safe transition throughout labor and are adjustable to a number of positions to enhance the labor process. A sleep chair provides a comfortable bed for dad or support person during your stay. Each room is also equipped with a television, a rocker-glider, an in-suite bathroom and shower.
Our triage staff evaluates the progress of your labor to determine if you are ready to be admitted to the Birthing Suite. If you are experiencing complications related to your pregnancy, you may also be sent to Triage for evaluation.
Dedicated operating rooms
Three operating rooms are available in Labor and Delivery for mothers who deliver by cesarean section.
The Women’s Board Birthing Suite is a secured unit and has a highly advanced security system. All visitors must speak with the front desk receptionist before entering the unit.
