ROCHESTER, N.Y. — A brand new labor and delivery unit opened Wednesday at Rochester General Hospital.

The unit includes 20 new patient rooms and two on-unit operating rooms.

RGH sent us these photos of the new suites.

There are also multiple nursing stations and provider stations caring for patients around the unit.

“Having a baby is a very special time in people’s lives and being in a beautiful modern space like this means that families can do that in a sort of comfortable environment knowing that they have access to all of the most modern technology and have the space they need to be a family while this really important thing is happening,” said Amy Craib, RGH acting President.

As for the old unit—RGH says it will repurpose the space.
