Expecting a baby is one of those rare life experiences filled with equal parts elation and apprehension. While most expectant mothers and families do just fine with the joyful part of the equation, sometimes it’s the unknown with which they can use a little reassurance. That’s where Jupiter Medical Center’s experienced, advanced and compassionate obstetrics care comes into play.
At the Florence A. De George Children’s and Women’s Services Obstetrics Unit, we deliver over 1,700 babies per year, providing leading care in a state-of-the-art facility with all the luxury and comfort of home. The unit contains eight labor rooms, two state-of-the-art operating suites, and 17 post-delivery rooms.
In addition to the world-class care, the facility offers unmatched hospitality with suites that comfortably accommodate overnight labor partners and a plush lounge where loved ones can gather and support mom and baby nearby. There’s a reason why readers of the Palm Beach Post in both 2019 and 2020 voted Jupiter Medical Center as the Best Place to Have a Baby in Palm County.
When Your New Baby Needs Extra Care
Newborns in need of extra care because of premature delivery or other difficulties where close monitoring and medical intervention becomes necessary do far better if they’re not moved to another facility following birth.
