At Banner Gateway, every birth is a unique experience, and our highly skilled, compassionate staff provides comprehensive specialty care and an array of education and support services.
We have the expertise and experience to care for some of the most complex pregnancies and deliveries. We use the Intelligent Record OB information system that provides improved monitoring and customized care guidelines. This state-of-the-art system has been proven to prevent medical errors and to provide more comprehensive care for mothers and babies.
Labor & Delivery
Banner Gateway has a private OB entrance with 24-hour access for women in labor. Here, patients are assessed and are taken to one of four OB triage rooms or one of the hospital’s 11 labor and delivery suites.
The unit also includes two OB operating suites with a two-bed OB recovery room for Cesarean (C-section) deliveries or when surgical intervention is otherwise necessary.
The OB unit also offers a Japanese Soaking Tub to help women relax and ease the stress of labor. It may also be used after delivery with physician’s orders.
There's also a private healing garden for OB patients and their families. A safe and secure environment, the garden is only accessible from the unit. It is a place for relaxation and reflection, with walking paths, playgrounds for siblings, benches, tables and water features.
Banner Gateway follows the couplet care model for mothers and well babies. Following delivery, mothers and babies are moved to one of 30 private postpartum recovery rooms. These private suites are large enough to accommodate mother, baby and family. Rooms include private bathrooms, couches that convert to beds, and such amenities as flat screen televisions, Internet access and mini refrigerators.
We also offer room service to our maternity patients. Our menu includes French toast for breakfast; grilled hamburgers, entrée salads and pasta dishes for lunch; and fajitas, turkey, pot roast and salmon for dinner.
Flexible visiting hours ensure family and friends can help celebrate the happy occasion.
We also have a nursery that can accommodate up to ten well babies and a Level II Special Care Nursery that can care for up to eight babies.
To ensure the safety of each baby, tamper-proof security bands are placed on each child at birth and are not removed until discharge. The Women’s and Infant Services department uses a state-of-the-art security system with Closed Circuit Televisions for added security.
