Babies, Babies, and More Babies!
AAMC Breaks Record Nine Years in a Row
Since Anne Arundel Medical Center’s Women’s and Children’s Center moved into the new Clatanoff Pavilion in 1995, the hospital has broken each previous year’s record for number of births. This year AAMC recorded 5,156 births. That’s up from 4,676 last year. Of the 33 hospitals in Maryland where babies are delivered,AAMC ranks number two in the number of deliveries.
Karen Doyle, Executive Director for Women’s and Children’s Services at AAMC, said the numbers reflect the reputation that AAMC has for high touch, quality care for new moms and their babies.
“We are proud of our physicians and nursing staff who deliver high quality, comprehensive family-centered care. Our staff is fully committed to providing the best experience for the new Mom and her baby,” she said.
AAMC’s Women’s and Children’s Center has 36 private postpartum rooms where families and newborns can enjoy their first days together in privacy. Moms are encouraged to relax and be pampered with a free massage between feedings and naps. Special TV programming provides advice and information on infant care and a variety of other topics of interest to new mothers.
As for the babies, should they need special care due to prematurity, high bilirubin counts, or other conditions requiring specialized monitoring, AAMC has a Level III+ Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Families find comfort in knowing that high-level skills in the NICU are available, just in case.
