Obstetrics at Missouri Baptist Sullivan Hospital is staffed by an experienced team
of professionals led by:
The new 6,800 square-foot department consists of six spacious private suites allowing
new moms to remain in the same room from labor, delivery, recovery to discharge.
Other benefits include a fully integrated, easily accessible centralized nurses'
station with a triage room to assess patients in early labor and a dedicated waiting
room for families.
Equipped with the latest technology, this family-focused design allows the whole
family to share a positive birth experience. A tranquil atmosphere flows through
hallways between maternity suites featuring muted pastels revealing delicate leaf
art. Similar, eye-pleasing leaf art is imprinted on pillow cases to further enhance
a home-like feeling for mothers. The unit continues the tradition of displaying
newborn footprints on framed displays along the hallways.
Each suite provides parents and their families with a comfortable experience with
amenities like expansive windows, sleeper sofas, rocking chairs, adjustable lighting,
private bathrooms and showers decorated with colorful mosaic tiles and flat screen
TVs, DVD and CD players. Designers even thought to cover medical equipment affixed
to walls with artwork, which slides over it when not in use.
