The Birthplace at Summerlin Hospital

The Birthplace at Summerlin Hospital Medical Center offers advanced services for moms and babies in a comfortable environment for families to share those first special moments. Our private suites feature soft color schemes, beautiful décor, even hardwood floors and beautiful views that complement these serene surroundings.

Welcome to The Birthplace

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. As part of our laborist program, an in-house OB/GYN is present at the hospital 24 hours a day, seven days a week for emergencies or to assist other OB/GYNs.

The Birthplace offers:

  • Private birthing and postpartum suites
  • Cesarean surgical suites located on the unit for quicker access and more privacy
  • Level III Nursery/Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) should your baby need special care
  • Perinatal testing and an antepartum unit for women with high-risk pregnancies

The Birthplace provides in-room accommodations for birth partners, and although hospital visitation is limited to only one adult at this time, we hope to be back to our normal family-centered visitation policies that will allow siblings again very soon. Newborns stay in the room with mom so you can spend the most time with your new addition. Ask your nurse or doctor for updates on our visitation policy, but in the meantime, remember to make arrangements for the care of your other children before you come to the hospital.

Infant security

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 automatically confirms that the right baby is with the right mom by giving an audible signal to indicate a match or mismatch.

Hospital photography

This is such an exciting time and we are honored to be a part of it. We know it can take a bit of time to adjust to a newborn's routine, but we are looking forward to helping you document these first moments forever. The photo session is completely complimentary and there is no obligation to purchase.

Birth Tissue Enhances and Heals Lives

New law requires information be given to pregnant patients

Expectant mothers can choose to donate birth tissue following the delivery of their healthy newborn(s) in a Nevada-licensed freestanding birthing center or hospital. Birth tissue, which includes amniotic membrane and fluid; placenta; umbilical cord tissue and umbilical veins; chorionic membrane; cord blood and connective tissue contained in the umbilical cord called “Wharton’s Jelly”; or any other tissue derived from a live birth provides nutrients and protection to support fetal development in the womb and is normally discarded after birth. These birth tissues, made up of proteins, growth factors, cytokines and extracellular matrix molecules have been found to stimulate cell regeneration, reduce inflammation and expedite recovery times when used in regenerative therapy as tissue grafts.

Donated birth tissues have been used for many years in various medical procedures and therapies, including (but not limited to) wound healing, ophthalmic procedures, skin grafting, spinal surgeries and sports injuries. Birth tissue donation is safe for mothers and babies, and there is no cost to the mother for giving this gift of healing. The donation and utilization of birth tissue is regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and standards for the donation of birth tissue are provided by the American Association of Tissue Banks (AATB).

Nevada entities accredited by the American Association of Tissue Banks (AATB) for the acquisition or collection of birth tissue are listed at and At this time, there is only one such entity (Nevada Donor Network) but others will be added as requested by such entities, as required by Assembly Bill 154). The bill also requires a hospital or a physician practicing in the area of obstetrics and gynecology to provide a patient who is pregnant with a link to or a printed copy of that list.
