 Love at First Sight

Our team has a love...

Our nurses have a love for children and a love of life that shows. You will see it in the small personal gestures – the look in their eyes when they hold your newborn, the kindness they show to all new parents and their families, and their attention to detail.

LABOR & DELIVERY

With the comforts of home

JOAN WOODMAN ORTON MCCOLLUM BIRTH CENTER

When you deliver here, our promise to you is an ongoing commitment to standards of medical excellence, along with our friendly, helpful, and welcoming staff.

We offer peace of mind to families by providing new mothers with advanced equipment and techniques, comfortable surroundings, and modern facilities essential to the best possible birth experience.

Hugs Infant Protection System

We offer the Hugs Infant Protection System® which eases new parents' concerns about the safety of their baby while at the hospital.

The Hugs Infant Protection System works in a number of ways. Each infant wears an unobtrusive, soft, tamper-proof Hugs tag attached around his or her ankle. A computer console in the Birth Center nurses station displays floor plans of the facility showing tag locations with monitored areas and doors indicated. Alarms are generated if the strap is cut or tampered with, if the infant is moved to an unauthorized zone, or if the tag’s signal is no longer detected.

The system features include: activation of devices such as hospital’s security cameras, door locks, overhead paging systems, pagers, sirens and elevators. In addition to these features, The Richland Hospital Inc. has the Kisses component of the Hugs system in place. Each mom is given a small tag that is bonded with her infant’s Hug tag. Nurses are alerted of a mismatch with an audible indicator.
