Fitzgibbon Hospital received the Baby-Friendly designation in 2014 from the World Health Organization, UNICEF and Baby-Friendly USA. We were just the fourth hospital in the entire state of Missouri to receive the designation. What does this mean for you?
We have implemented an extensive education program for our staff and for our patients about the importance of breastfeeding on the health of newborn babies in our care. But that's not all. The implementation of skin-to-skin contact immediately after birth for bonding time with mom and the fact that you never have to ask "can I have my baby?" means that this time can be even more special. Our babies "room-in" with moms so that you can have that time that you need with your new bundle of joy.
Here is a video of a few of our moms telling what their experience was like at Fitzgibbon Hospital.
Fitzgibbon Hospital’s Women’s Center is where women of all ages come to receive health care that exceeds expectation.
When you are a guest of the Women’s Center you can expect:
You can rest assured knowing that our highly-trained medical and nursing personnel are committed to providing you with the highest quality of care possible.
Because every guest comes to us with a different experience, we strive to work with you to meet your needs and assure that you have the tools you will need to continue caring for yourself when you return home.
We believe that giving women choices about their health care is very important. We strongly encourage women to take an active part in considering their health care options because we want women to feel empowered to make the best decisions possible.
The moment you walk through our doors you will notice a difference in your surroundings from the typical hospital setting. From the warm, inviting colors to the personal nutrition center and private rooms, we strive to make your hospital stay seem more like your home away from home.
