Hospital Maternity Center helps bring an average of 3,000+ new babies

of care. At Mission Hospital, we have advanced facilities, offer around-the-clock
availability from our attentive medical staff, and are passionate about
the level of patient care we provide. Our labor and delivery staff takes

the unique needs of each baby, mother, and loved ones connected to the
experience. The skilled nursing staff at our center reacts quickly in
emergencies, provides compassionate guidance when needed, and offers personalized
care that makes the birth of each baby special.
We also offer an array of pre-birth classes, pain management options, follow-up
programs, and specialized care for high-risk pregnancy to ensure that
each pregnancy and delivery are as joyful and memorable as possible. Our
primary goal is to constantly incorporate “best practices”
among our health care team, ensuring the highest quality care is provided

Features at Our Maternity Center
Heart Screening for Newborns
This March of Dimes initiative began at Mission Hospital on July 1, 2013
and provides mandatory screening for all newborns to identify critical
congenital heart disease. Within the first nine days of screening, we
identified our first critical case of congenital heart disease. Our goal
is to help provide early medical care and solutions for these infants.
Baby Friendly Designation
As a certified Baby Friendly™ Hospital, we are a member of a global
program sponsored by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the United
Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) to encourage and recognize hospitals
that offer an optimum level of care for lactation. This designation is
quite an honor, as only 243 U.S. hospitals and birthing centers in 46
states and the District of Columbia hold the Baby Friendly designation.
