Lee Health Expanded OB Services and Renovated Patient Rooms Now Open

Lee Health announces the opening of the expansion of obstetrical services and new and renovated OB rooms at HealthPark Medical Center.

“This move completes a large-scale renovation project aimed at expanding the OB service line while also creating a more comfortable experience for expectant families. The unit’s proximity to Golisano Children’s Hospital provides convenient access to the area’s only Level II and Level III neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) for high-risk pregnancies, and moving these beds to HealthPark allows us to best meet the needs of our Southwest Florida community,” said Susan Ryckman, RN, MS, Vice President of Patient Care Services, Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida.
The health system will now feature 107 OB beds, and all of the newly renovated rooms at HPMC will be fully private with family sleep capabilities. In addition to adding more beds, this move helps meet several other goals of Lee Health’s OB service line. The renovated delivery rooms are located near the unit’s operating suites should they be needed, and the OB Emergency Department and OB triage located in HealthPark’s emergency department is being expanded from three to seven beds, with a completion date of July 1, 2019.
