The birth of a baby is a precious and important moment in the life of a family. Although your due date may seem far ahead in the future, you will be pleasantly surprised by how quickly the time passes.
At Chester County Hospital, we have designed our family-centered Maternal/Infant Health Services to focus on you, your family, and your new baby. Our facility and the services we offer will help facilitate your care, from prenatal testing and birthing support to postpartum and newborn care.
Our Maternal/Infant Health Services team consists of highly skilled, board-certified obstetricians, neonatologists, nurse practitioners, and nurses who excel in the warm, compassionate care that is typical of a community-based hospital.
When selecting a hospital in anticipation of a new baby, expecting parents know that quality care is the most important consideration, and they choose the hospital that offers the safest environment for their newborn's arrival. That is why more babies are delivered at Chester County Hospital than any other hospital in the County. Maternal/Infant Health Services at Chester County Hospital have been designed with clinical quality in mind.
