Since 2000, more than 100,000 babies have been born at the Holy Cross Hospital Maternity Center, making it the most experienced maternity hospital in Maryland or the District of Columbia. It is also among the largest single-site hospital providers of obstetric care in the country.
Holy Cross Hospital offers services that begin at the start of your pregnancy with prenatal care—and continue to post-birth care for mother and child. Our maternity center offers the comfort of all private labor and delivery rooms, and post-natal suites with basinets for baby.
Women requiring special care, because of age, a medical condition or because they are expecting multiple births, have access to the team of experts at our Perinatal Diagnostic Center.
For women who require hospitalization during their pregnancies, our High-Risk Perinatal Center provides expert 24-hour-a-day care. And if their babies are born with medical problems, they have the added benefit of Holy Cross Hospital’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, which cares for more newborns with complex medical issues than any other hospital in the region.
That same quality of maternity services will also be provided at Holy Cross Germantown Hospital (opening in October 2014). It is the first-ever maternity hospital in Germantown, Md., and will give families in this fast growing community—and throughout the region—quality health care, with full-service labor and delivery rooms, dedicated cesarean-section operating rooms, a post-partum care unit and a neonatal unit.
Holy Cross Health also offers a host of classes taught by registered nurses certified in childbirth education, in English and Spanish. These classes help parents, siblings and grandparents prepare for pregnancy and a new addition the family. Topics range from what to expect during labor and delivery—to baby care and breast feeding. Check out a complete listing of available classes.
