Obstetrical Care at West Penn Hospital
West Penn Hospital provides an exceptional obstetrics program for women and infants. Offering highly personalized care that is focused on the individual needs and desires of today's mothers and their families, West Penn Hospital's dedicated obstetric and neonatal healthcare professionals provide high-quality, compassionate care in our state-of-the-art birthing suites and other facilities.
Here, you’ll find some of the nation’s finest physicians — with state-of-the-art technology at their fingertips. And you’ll receive nursing care that is the first in Pittsburgh to receive Magnet designation for nursing excellence. Your own dedicated nurse will be by your side through delivery. And your baby will be in the care of a special “stork nurse,” who’s an expert in every aspect of newborn care.
What makes West Penn Hospital’s care even better is that our labor and delivery suites provide home-away-from-home comforts where your whole experience — from labor to delivery to bonding with your baby — can all happen in the same quiet, comfortable room. Rocking chairs and daybeds. HDTV, DVD and Wi-Fi. Adjustable lighting and temperature. And a dining area where your family can enjoy room service. There’s even a Jacuzzi to help relieve labor pains. And a family area and playroom just down the hall.
West Penn serves as a regional referral center for high-risk pregnancies and maternal fetal medicine. In addition, we are very proud to offer a Level III neonatal intensive care unit – the highest and most sophisticated level of care possible. West Penn Hospital also offers the area’s first Infant Apnea Center to evaluate, manage and monitor babies and young children at risk for life-threatening events.
