More than you're expecting
The Women & Infant Center at Ministry Saint Michael's Hospital in Stevens Point provides family-centered obstetric care. With more than 700 babies born here each year, we know that no two families are alike, so we're focused on offering individualized options to add the personal touch and memorable experience you want.
Nine comfortable, family-size LDRP (labor, delivery, recovery and postpartum) birthing suites are available with more the feeling of a home than a hospital; their warm, inviting atmosphere features a fold-out sleeper chair for your support person, a recliner, rocker, TV and phone. It also contains everything the staff will need for your baby's birth. In this room, you will labor, birth (non-cesarean), recover and rest for your entire hospital stay. A cesarean operating room suite is down the hall. The Center provides the convenience of open visiting hours for Dad, siblings and grandparents; the joy of having your new baby in your room 24 hours a day and the peace of mind of a state-of-the-art infant security system.
Our on-staff, board-certified Ministry Medical Group obstetrician/gynecologist team provides our patients high levels of expertise and personalized care. Nurse Practitioners specialized in women's health, pediatricians and Family Practice Physicians experienced in newborn care, and International Board Certified Lactation Consultants are also available. Our doctors and nurses really care about your family; they'll do everything they can to make your birth experience positive and comfortable. Ask us questions, let us know what you want, and be confident that you and your baby are in good hands.
"It's a very special thing to have our entire OB/GYN department board certified and is indicative of our commitment to the highest quality of care available locally." - Dr. Fred Boehm, OB/GYN
