At Banner Thunderbird, we offer private Labor, Delivery and Recovery rooms in home-like settings, each furnished with birthing beds, comfortable recliners, private bathrooms and televisions. Our Post-Partum unit also provides comfortable private rooms.
We have a dedicated inpatient unit where we specialize in managing high-risk pregnancies, if complications arise. We also have the only Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit in the West Valley if a new baby needs special care. A neonatal nurse practitioner is available 24 hours a day to attend deliveries if needed.
Every baby receives a newborn hearing test to identify possible hearing impairments and jaundice screening.
Security for Moms and Babies
Rest assured, a stay at Banner Thunderbird will not only be comfortable, but secure as well, since we have a state-of-the-art security system to protect new parents and babies while they are here.
Each day between 2 and 4 p.m. we turn down the lights to allow you and your family to spend time with your newborn - without any interruptions.
“Our 365” photo services
All babies are photographed with a high-quality digital camera by professionals of “Our 365” right in the hospital room. Photos are available for purchase and may also be posted to the Internet for family and friends. The “Our 365” service is safe, secure and private as all babies are given an individual Web address code that is distributed solely by the parents.
