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.
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
- A 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 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.
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.
