The Birth Center at Sequoia Hospital has long been a cornerstone service line to the hospital’s business model and a community favorite as well. Sequoia’s birthing suites are designed to reflect a belief in togetherness for the whole family. Each suite features a built-in bed or sleeper chair to allow birthing partners to spend the night with the new mother and baby and private restrooms in each suite enhance the families’ privacy. Suites are large enough to welcome visits from siblings, family and friends in a home-like environment.
Sequoia Hospital’s Birth Center offers 24-hour anesthesia and OB doctor coverage as we as an onsite Level II neonatal intensive care unit (NICU)staffed by doctors and nurses from Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford who specialize in neonatology care.
To enable the hospital to maintain this high-standard of care, the Sequoia Hospital Foundation is proud to provide funding for equipment and initiatives within Sequoia’s award-winning Birth Center. Projects previously funded by the Foundation include Avalon fetal and maternal monitors, new patient beds throughout the Birth Center and the Vocera wireless communications system, enabling ease-of-communication between staff from the bedside to the nursing station, lab and throughout the building.
