Enhanced security

Safety is one of our main concerns. We take every precaution to protect you and your baby at all times. For baby’s protection and your peace of mind, every nurse wears identification with a photo, so you can easily recognize staff.

You, dad, and your baby will all have identically numbered bracelets secured to you and your baby at birth.

Newborn nursery

To promote the mother-infant bonding process, we encourage mothers to room-in with their infant.

The nursery offers large viewing windows for siblings/families of babies, bassinets, and state-of-the-art equipment for premature babies or for those needing additional medical attention.

Pediatric hospitalists

We are proud to have pediatric hospitalists available 24 hours a day for high-risk deliveries as well as any situation when your baby may need specialized care.

Birth certificates

Following your baby’s birth, you’ll receive a registration worksheet for his or her birth certificate. Once completed, a secretary will bring a typed copy of the form to your room to verify the information and obtain your signature.


Ohio law specifically indicates that the birth certificate for a child will record the mother's husband as the father unless otherwise stipulated on a court order.

For unwed parents, a notarized acknowledgment of paternity form can be signed at the hospital at the time of birth. The father must have a current, valid picture ID card with him at signing. The father's name may not be entered without the written consent of the individual to be named as the father.
