Designed with the comfort of patients and needs of staff in mind, the Family Birth Center offers many services and amenities.
The Obstetrics & Gynecology clinic is directly connected to the Family Birth Center. In the event of an emergency in the clinic, women can be transported immediately to the hospital, saving valuable time.
Our private rooms offer a homelike atmosphere that combines the highest level of comfort with advanced obstetrical equipment and technology. You will labor and deliver in one room and then transition to a recovery room for the remainder of your stay. There is plenty of space for family members who wish to be with you during labor and/or delivery — or to visit with you after delivery. You can benefit from a soothing whirlpool spa during labor — or relax a few minutes after the baby is born.
Level II Special Care Nursery
Our state-of-the-art Special Care Nursery is available on-site in Eau Claire. Staffed by highly trained, experienced nurses, babies that need a higher level of care can receive it here when needed. Babies born at Mayo Clinic Health System locations in Barron and Menomonie needing Level II care are transferred to this nursery for a seamless transition of care.
Family Waiting Room
Our Family Waiting Room is equipped with the many comforts of home. It allows family and friends who are not in the room with you during labor a special place to wait for the arrival of the new baby. It also provides a welcome place for dads, children, grandparents and other visitors to sit if you need to take a break or rest.
To provide the safest environment for your new bundle of joy, the Family Birth Center is a locked unit. Upon arrival to the unit, visitors should push the button/pick up the phone to be granted access.
A nourishment center with snacks, refrigerator and microwave is available for you.
