The BirthPlace at Summerlin Hospital
The BirthPlace at Summerlin Hospital offers advanced services for moms and babies, in a comfortable environment for you and your family to share those first special moments. Our private suites feature soft color schemes, beautiful décor, even hardwood floors, along with beautiful views that complement these serene surroundings. When you have your baby at The BirthPlace at Summerlin Hospital, you'll stay in one of our private suites, and be under the care of our specially-trained staff. If needed, cesarean surgical suites are located on the unit for quicker access and more privacy. The BirthPlace has a Level III Nursery/Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) should your baby need special care, as well as perinatal testing for women with high-risk pregnancies.
The BirthPlace not only provides in-room accommodations for dads or birth partners, siblings are welcome to visit their new baby brother or sister too. And so that you can spend the most time your your new addition, newborns stay in the room with mom.
Tours of The BirthPlace are several times a month. A maximum of 50 people per tour, so call (702) 233-7103 for dates, times and to reserve your place on a tour.
Infant security is an important issue for every maternity unit, but Summerlin Hospital is breaking new ground in Las Vegas by offering a special component in infant protection that matches moms with their newborn. A new component of the Hugs® Infant Protection System by Xmark, Kisses™ automatically confirms that the right baby is with the right mom by giving an audible signal to indicate a match or mismatch.
Partnership with Families
The FamilyPlace, Summerlin Hospital’s childbirth education program, has expanded its programming to offer classes on a wider range of topics for families. “The new classes and support groups offered by The FamilyPlace were designed to meet the needs of families as they grow and change over time,” said Bacon. Classes and checkups offered through The FamilyPlace now include free car seat checks, babysitting classes and prenatal yoga. The prenatal yoga uses basic Hatha Yoga poses and relaxation techniques that are designed to comfort women during their pregnancy while preparing their bodies for labor. Pregnant women can learn to relieve certain physical discomforts common in pregnancy through stretching and breathing techniques.
Please Note: Children under 12 who are not siblings of the newborn are not allowed to visit and enter the Labor and Delivery/Postpartum area. Only one adult may stay overnight in Labor and Delivery/Postpartum to assist the mother. It is the parent's responsibility to have a carseat installed properly in their vehicle before mom and baby are discharged. Hospital staff members are not permitted to assist with carseat installation.
