We have been delivering compassionate care to East Valley moms and babies since 1975.
We are regularly ranked in the top 10 percent for patient experience by our patients through CMS, a national database that publicly reports hospital’s performance.
Labor and Delivery
Our Labor, Delivery and Recovery rooms are large enough to accommodate family, friends or additional support during the birth.
We provide amenities such as our private soaking tub, birthing balls and rocking chairs to help women relax and ease the stress of labor. We also provide wireless monitors that allow added mobility.
High Risk Obstetrics
Banner Desert is the only hospital in the East Valley to offer a Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. We provide at-risk mothers dedicated and experienced doctors and nurses prepared to care for the most complex pregnancies and deliveries, as well as for emergencies that may arise during routine deliveries.
At Banner Desert, we practice “couplet care,” bringing mother and baby room together after delivery. They are cared for by the same nursing staff on our 3C/2C post-partum unit. This allows for additional bonding.
3C is a new unit that features 24 spacious private rooms designed to provide family-centered care, a large nursery, a family waiting room and is close to the Banner Children's Level III NICU.
Each room has a large private bathroom and comfortable sleep arrangements for support person to stay with mom and baby. There is plenty of space in every room to accommodate family and visitors. In addition, each room is equipped with a large flat screen TV and the latest safety technology.
Dads can stay overnight in comfort and our visiting hours support a family-centered care philosophy. To ensure the safety of each baby, tamper-proof security bands are placed on each child at birth and are not removed until discharge.
