For generations, Women & Infants Hospital has cared for parents and their families at pivotal moments in their lives. When Women & Infants Hospital's current labor and delivery suite opened 35 years ago, it was considered state-of-the-art. Since then, medical protocols and the medical needs of families-to-be have evolved considerably, and standards around provider efficiency have changed.
Put simply, a more technologically advanced, better-designed birth center is urgently needed for all women in Rhode Island.
Women & Infants Hospital is a leader and innovator in the fields of normal and high-risk obstetrics and neonatology, with over 80 percent of women from Southern New England choosing to give birth at Women & Infants Hospital. Women & Infants Hospital has a well-established referral relationship with providers, hospitals, and health systems across Southern New England. However, the existing facility no longer meets today’s architectural standards or patient and family expectations.
Renovation of the Labor and Delivery Unit helps create a state-of-the-art care environment that matches and enhances clinical excellence.
Care New England has the opportunity to develop a Women’s Health Research Institute, which would capitalize upon the strengths of women’s healthcare delivery and women’s health research across the system. Care New England is uniquely positioned to develop a truly interdisciplinary women’s health research institute because of the number of clinical service lines open, the diversity of our patient population, the high volume of patient visits across the system, and the nationally recognized expertise in women’s health.
