Exceptional, compassionate care and all the specialized services you might find in a larger city medical center - that's what you can expect from the Maternity Program at Lawrence Hospital Center. Delivering almost 2,000 babies annually, our Labor and Delivery Department has earned the prestigious 5-Star Rating - the highest possible - from a leader in independent healthcare ratings. We provide prenatal testing and advanced medical expertise for at-risk mothers and babies.
Our new Maternity Center has 23 private, comfortable post-partum rooms complete with their own bathrooms & showers, flat-screen televisions and access to the Internet. The Center also features a new state-of-the-art Nursery for babies. Additionally, Lawrence has a Neonatal Intensive Care Nursery, for babies with special needs or who are premature. It is staffed by neonatologists from New York Presbyterian/Cornell Weill, providing infants with the same expert care as that expected from a city hospital.
Lawrence Hospital Center also provides a variety of resources to help patients achieve their individual breastfeeding goals. We offer prenatal breastfeeding classes for expectant parents, an on-site Lactation Specialist, and “rooming in” is encouraged to enable on-demand feeding. Lawrence helps mothers develop a night-time feeding schedule to further support a breastfeeding plan. When mothers go home, our staff provides follow-up breastfeeding phone calls and encourages new mothers to participate in the hospital’s monthly Breastfeeding Support Group.
Plus, we have Lamaze and Childbirth classes to help prepare you for the birth of your child. For more information, please call (914) 787-5044.
