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.
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 and an antepartum unit for women with high-risk pregnancies.
The Birthplace provides in-room accommodations for dads or 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 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 Birthplace 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 Birthplace are designed to meet the needs of families as they grow and change over time. Classes now include free car seat checks, natural childbirth methods, Spinning Babies®, breastfeeding and Hypnobirthing® classes. Some classes are available in an on-line format as well.
- Only one adult may stay overnight in Labor and Delivery/Postpartum to assist the mother.
- It is the parent's responsibility to have a car seat installed properly in their vehicle before mom and baby are discharged. Hospital staff members are not permitted to assist with car seat installation.
- We recommend every expectant parent contact our financial counselor before the birth of their child so there are no financial surprises during this very precious time. Please call our financial counselor at 702-233-7668.
