A Closer Look at NewYork-Presbyterian Hudson Valley Hospital’s New Maternal & Newborn Care Unit
NewYork-Presbyterian Hudson Valley Hospital recently opened the doors to its new Maternal & Newborn Care Unit. “The new Maternal & Newborn Care Unit reflects NewYork-Presbyterian’s ongoing commitment to providing exceptional care to expectant mothers, their newborns and the entire family” said Stacey Petrower, president of NewYork-Presbyterian Hudson Valley Hospital.
The new state-of-the-art facility boasts a soothing, modern design, which reimagines the experience for families. Luxurious and spacious, two words that describe the private postpartum rooms, complete with comfortable beds for partners, a spa-like bathroom and shower, adjustable lighting and individual temperature control. Labor and delivery rooms each include a soaking tub—and the new facility is also fully equipped with triage suites and operating rooms and a Level 2 Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
“We’ve created an environment that is as soothing and welcoming as possible for our moms, their partners and family so that they can have a larger role in this very special experience,” says Dr. Garica who is also a practicing Ob/GYN with NewYork-Presbyterian Medical Group Hudson Valley and Assistant Professor of Obstetrics & Gynecology at Columbia University Vagelos College of Physicians & Surgeons.
