The new maternity unit features a level-two neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) that is able to accommodate babies born as early as 32 weeks, a well-baby nursery, a mother and baby model of care, and two private VIP suites. All patient rooms are able to accommodate fathers and another family member.

"Our maternity unit is truly dedicated to family-centered maternity care," said Holy Cross Hospital President and CEO Patrick A. Taylor, M.D. "We look forward to welcoming new moms and their babies and continuing our tradition of excellence with best practices such as our Skin to Skin program, which allows moms and babies to bond from the very moment of birth."

The facility's phase-two renovations will begin in July and will include the labor and delivery area, nurses’ stations, family waiting room and education rooms. When complete in early 2015, the entire facility will feature the latest state-of-the-art technology in obstetrics.

The maternity renovations will primarily be funded through philanthropy with a wide range of naming opportunities available, from the facility's name to specific areas such as the family waiting area, nurses’ stations, private suites, NICU, labor and delivery, well-baby nursery and the mother and baby unit.
