National Recognition!

We’re excited to announce that we have once again been recognized by the U.S. News & World Report 2023-2024 Best Hospitals for Maternity Care ratings, offering expecting families options for seeking high-quality care for uncomplicated pregnancies.

Memorial Healthcare has also been granted the new designation for Maternity Care Access from U.S. News & World Report. Maternity Care Access Hospitals serve a community that depends on it for access to essential maternity care services. They are more critical than ever as a growing number of communities in the U.S. lack this type of care, increasing the number of maternity care deserts. Of the 680 hospitals reporting, Memorial Healthcare is among the top six percent in maternity care.

The Warmth of Home

At Memorial’s Family Birth Place, our Labor, Delivery and Recovery (LDR) units blend state-of-the-art technology and the warmth of a home-like atmosphere to provide a comfortable, safe environment for one of the most exhilarating experiences in a family’s life.

Care and compassion are the hallmarks of Memorial’s highly skilled obstetric teams. With nearly 600 babies born each year, the Family Birth Place encourages mothers along the way, invites dads or support persons to share the experience, and promotes education. A talented team of labor provides a wide variety of prenatal classes and delivery nurses.

Moms can feel good knowing they are never alone. Our staff is here to assist you before, during, and after delivery.

Our beautiful birthing rooms are spacious, overlooking the gorgeous Shiawassee River to help you relax and provide a beautiful focal point during labor. To encourage you along the way, dad or a support person is invited to participate, too. We’ll even provide a place to spend the night with mom and baby! Your friends and family can visit as often as you like in your own private room.

We Let You Choose

Memorial offers various educational programs to support you during your pregnancy. Our staff wants you to feel secure in your ability to care for your newborn and encourages questions. Our patient rooms also offer a variety of educational videos for you to view during your stay.

“Absolutely nothing! We had an excellent experience and as with both of my children, we will expect to come here for any future children. The food was even awesome and the “mom & dad” dinner was truly a very endearing experience.  Thank you for the wonderful experience!”
