Announcing A New Addition
Rideout Health Receives Approval to open - The Family Birthing Center

Marysville March 30, 2017 – On March 31, 2017 Rideout was approved to open floors 4 and 5, The Family Birthing Center at the Rideout Regional Medical Center. Rideout will begin serving patients at the new location on May 1, 2017. The new center will replace our labor & delivery services at Fremont Medical Center.

"The Family Birthing Center is a wonderful example of our commitment to providing our patients with state-of-the-art-health care in a lovely, peaceful and technologically advanced environment," said Gino Patrizio, CEO.

Rideout dedicates two floors to the celebration of new life with our new Family Birthing Center, Well Baby Nursery & Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.

Expectant mothers will be taken care of by a compassionate team of dedicated and knowledgeable experts – skilled physicians, experienced maternity nurses and health staff – at our beautiful Family Birthing Center.

During labor, mothers will be accommodated on the firth floor in a spacious private suite with large windows and comfortable sleeping and seating accommodations. The fifth floor also offers two C-section rooms, an ante-partum testing unit and triage.

Following delivery, mothers and babies move to the fourth floor to private suites until they are ready to go home. Each suite has its own private bath and shower and is large enough to accommodate a basinet as well as family members. The fourth floor also includes a well-baby nursery and Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. The NICU is staffed by a skilled team who specialize in the care of premature and ill newborns.

"Thank you, friends for joining us on our journey. On behalf of the many thousands of people who have worked to make this a reality, it is our honor to have been part of creating something that will touch the lives of so many of our family, friends and neighbors."
