The Women’s Center specializes in the highest quality of care for you and your baby.
We are delighted that you have chosen to have your baby at Jackson County Memorial Hospital. We know that you are busy preparing for your newborn. We invite you to take time to review this information and would love the opportunity to answer any questions you might have. We want you to have an excellent birthing experience and a wonderful stay in the JCMH Women’s Center.
We understand the importance of having support persons with you during the birthing experience. In order to better serve you, we ask that you choose support persons ahead of time to accompany you during labor. We ask that any other friends and family members wait in the Women’s Center waiting room. This will allow us to focus on you and your baby, giving you the personal and skilled care that you deserve. Hospital visiting hours are 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.
The Women’s Center has teamed up with the JCMH Food Services Department to provide an exclusive service to inpatients staying on the Women’s Center. The Five Star Meal Service allows patients to order from a menu with a variety of foods and beverages. One free guest tray per meal is also provided for your convenience. Meals are served from 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
We know that the first few days you will spend with your newborn are extremely important. Once the baby is delivered, self-care is promoted. Rooming in is also promoted because it allows you to get to know your newborn. Comfortable LDRP (Labor, Delivery, Recovery and Postpartum) rooms provide wonderful accommodations for you during your delivery and for your visiting friends and family members.
Babygram Videos from Radiology
A Babygram is an ultrasound of your unborn baby done between 20 and 30 weeks of gestation. This can let you know the sex of the baby as well as give you images to take home and a video of the new addition to your family.
Schedule your own babygram
You may schedule an appointment at 580-379-5100. The charge is $115 due at the time of the exam. This will include the exam, images and a keepsake videotape.
We want to answer any questions you might have about your upcoming birthing experience and stay at JCMH. JCMH endorses the Speak Up initiative: if something isn’t working correctly in your room, we ask that you please notify any staff member. We want the opportunity to remedy whatever problem you may be having as soon as possible. Please feel free to call the Nurse Manager of Women’s Center at 580-379-5220.
When You Go Home
At JCMH, we understand the importance of customer service. One way that we measure our patient satisfaction is by sending each inpatient a survey asking about their recent stay. Each returned survey is carefully reviewed. When you leave our facility, we want you to be more than pleased with your stay at JCMH. Our goal is to exceed your expectations by providing you with very good care.
