Labor and Delivery at Memorial Hermann Southwest Hospital
Delivering more than 3,500 babies annually, Memorial Hermann Southwest provides individualized care to meet the unique cultural, spiritual, emotional and physical needs of the mother and her infant and family.
Top 5% in the Nation
HealthGrades, the leading independent healthcare ratings company, has recognized this excellence, ranking the hospital's maternity care among the top 5 percent in the nation* for the past five years. It is also one of only two hospitals in the Houston-Baytown-Sugar Land area to receive the HealthGrades Maternity Care Excellence Award for seven consecutive years.
Labor, Delivery and Recovery Rooms
Private, spacious state-of-the-art labor, delivery and recovery rooms feature comfortable, home-like amenities. Operating rooms are located nearby for cesarean deliveries. Affiliated obstetricians and anesthesiologists are available around the clock to serve only women in childbirth.
Superior technology enables physicians to monitor maternal contraction patterns and fetal heart rates from their offices and phones, so they can provide care instructions to the hospital's experienced labor and delivery nurses with an average tenure of 18 years.
Private Postpartum Rooms
Following delivery, new moms enjoy recently renovated, private postpartum rooms featuring amenities such as wifi and room service for meals. Here, mom can have her baby room-in along with another adult who can share in this special time.
Couplet care, where the same nurse cares for mother and baby, enables nurses to provide more personalized care, education and support to build the confidence of new parents in caring for their newborn.
For further convenience throughout your stay, we offer valet parking services and a family lounge with vending machines.
