Obstetric Emergency Department

Our team of labor and delivery nurses, nurse practitioners and board certified obstetricians are available 24/7 to provide care at any stage of pregnancy in a dedicated 10-bed unit located next to the Labor & Delivery Unit on the 2nd floor.

The Obstetric Emergency Department treats walk-ins, patients arriving by ambulance and those referred by an obstetrician for conditions including:

  • severe nausea
  • vaginal bleeding
  • lower back pain
  • early contractions
  • other pregnancy-related complications

Women should talk with their OB-GYN early in their pregnancy about what to do in the event of an emergency.
