Baby-Friendly Hospitals

Among our birthing hospitals, you can choose a center with a Baby-Friendly designation, an initiative sponsored by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) to encourage and recognize hospitals that offer optimal care for infant feeding. Fairview, Lakewood and Hillcrest hospitals are all Baby-Friendly designated and Medina Hospital is currently seeking the designation by participating in a survey later this year.

Special Delivery Units

Women who need emergency services for complicated pregnancies can be transferred to our specialized intensive delivery unit. The Special Delivery Unit offers women who are carrying babies with known birth defects a compassionate, family-centered setting for labor and delivery, with access to world-class adult and pediatric specialists. The Unit also caters to pregnant women with serious conditions such as congenital heart disease, cancer or autoimmune diseases.
