The Reception Pavilion
Visitors enter The Women & Babies Hospital through the Reception Pavilion. Our knowledgeable receptionists are trained to answer questions and provide directions. The spacious lobby serves as a comfortable meeting place for family and friends. A cafe, gift shop, landscaped courtyards and children's play areas are located nearby.
Labor and Delivery Room
Laboring women and their families feel comfortable and at home in our labor and delivery rooms. The rooms are large enough to accommodate family members and friends invited to share in the birth. Each room is well-appointed and includes a chair that pulls out into a bed for Dad.
Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)
The Women & Babies Hospital is home to Lancaster County's only Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit for the care of premature and ill newborns. Our highly trained, compassionate NICU staff uses the latest technology and treatment techniques to care for our youngest of patients. The unit is designed so parents can spend time with their babies in a setting that's comfortable and private.
What you'll find here isn’t just a state-of-the-art facility, it’s an entire philosophy. Our Orthopedic Center team is focused on treating you as person, not just your injury. Our services include diagnosis, surgery, rehabilitation and emotional support as you face an orthopedic concern.
When it comes to your heart, there’s no such thing as a minor problem. Our Heart Center offers the most up to date technologies and treatment options available as well as cardiac education, regarding prevention and treatment options. In fact, the comprehensive program we’ve developed has placed us among Americas 100 Top Hospitals for cardiovascular care (Independent nationwide evaluation conducted by Solucient, 2002) and we have twice received certification by The Joint Commission for our treatment of Heart Attack victims.
This tour features an introduction by Tim Zellers, MSN, CRNP, Vice President Operations Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Services, and a look at the cardiac catheterization lab at Lancaster General Hospital.
Healthy Weight Management
According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), obesity in the United States has risen at an epidemic rate during the past 20 years.
In fact, 61 percent of Lancaster County adults are overweight according to the regional Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance Survey for 2005-2007. One of the national health objectives outlined in HealthyPeople 2010 is to reduce the prevalence of obesity among adults to less than 15 percent by 2010.
"Overweight" is defined by the National Institutes of Health as having a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 25 or greater. Obesity is indicated by a BMI of 30 or greater. While BMI is a useful screening tool, it is not a definite measure of overweight and obesity.
