Obstetrics 
 
 
 
 

Generations of Philadelphians began life at Hahnemann University Hospital. We have brought thousands of babies into the world with the understanding that each family has its own individual needs.

Now, in our new maternity facility, mothers can deliver their babies with the added confidence that they and their newborns have the benefit of some of the finest technology and medical treatment, all in a warm, home-like setting.

As part of an established university hospital, we also have access to advanced treatments and services for women with pregnancies complicated by pre-existing medical conditions as well as sophisticated technology for high-risk newborns in our neonatal intensive care nursery.

High Tech/High Touch

The OB and newborn 33,000-square-foot unit occupies an floor of the North and South Towers. In addition to advanced technology, families mothers can enjoy the inviting new décor, all designed with comfort, intimacy and privacy in mind. Our new unit features:

· 7 labor and delivery rooms (a Jacuzzi is located in one room)

· 17 post-partum rooms, many of which are private
