Health System has completed renovations of 20 labor and delivery rooms in its Family Birth Center at Beaumont Hospital, Royal Oak. Expecting parents stay in birthing rooms complete with cozy furniture, sleeper sofas and bathrooms with spa-like amenities – for extra comfort during labor.
"While we continue to offer the same high quality obstetrical care to expecting mothers, each of the labor and delivery rooms have been redesigned and updated to provide our patients a comfortable environment that is extremely relaxing and calming,” says Anne Ronk, director of nursing, Beaumont, Royal Oak.
The private patient birthing rooms include a docking station for portable media players, flat-screen televisions, refrigerators and blanket warmers. Renovations include noise-reducing flooring, warm design finishes, soothing wall colors and artwork to provide a restful environment.
To support the hospital’s ongoing eco-friendly initiatives, patient and family waiting areas of the Family Birth Center used Michigan-made and locally sourced materials.
