With every element in place to ensure the safest, most comfortable and patient-centered care available, the Women’s Pavilion at Hoag Hospital Newport Beach and the Fudge Family Birthing Suites at Hoag Hospital Irvine, are home to Hoag’s renowned Maternal Child program.
Hoag Hospital Newport Beach
Hoag Hospital Newport Beach is home to the county’s largest and most respected maternal child services program with nearly 200,000 babies born to date. Since the Sue and Bill Gross Women’s Pavilion opened in October 2005 over 25,000 babies have come into the world within the walls of the new tower.
Take the virtual tour of the Sue and Bill Gross Women’s Pavilion to view firsthand the comfortable and spacious Labor, Delivery & Recovery (LDR) and Mother Baby Unit (MBU) suites.
This exceptional birthing center was specifically designed to create a first-class experience for all patients and their families. Included in the Women’s Pavilion at Hoag Hospital Newport Beach is an advanced fetal diagnostic testing unit; a 14-bed antepartum unit; 18 fully equipped labor, delivery, and recovery suites; and a state-of-the-art Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) providing specialized, around-the-clock care for infants born prematurely, or with complications.
Antepartum Unit and Women’s Surgical Services
The new specialty antepartum unit on the fourth floor is a 14-bed haven for high-risk obstetric patients who require inpatient services. Comfortable and quiet, this unit has immediate access to operating rooms in the event of an emergency.
The 36 additional beds on this floor are used for gynecologic oncology and surgical patients. To learn more about Hoag’s high risk pregnancy services, please click here.
Labor, Delivery, Recovery (LDR)
OB Triage & Obstetric Emergency Department (OB ED)
Hoag’s 18 private LDR (labor, deliver, recovery) suites are found on the fifth floor of Hoag Hospital Newport Beach. These lovely suites provide comfort during labor and quickly transform into fully equipped delivery rooms for childbirth. The LDR unit has three C-section rooms and is staffed round-the-clock with anesthesiologists and OB/GYN Hospitalists.
Adjacent to the LDR unit is the three-bed OB Triage and four-room OB ED that services women over 16 weeks of pregnancy who come to Hoag via the Emergency Department or physician referral. To learn more about OB Triage and the Obstetric Emergency Department, please click here.
Fetal Diagnostic Center, NICU, Development Assessment Center
The 21-baby capacity Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is a “level three” nursery which means it’s equipped to handle every neonatal complication short of heart surgery. To learn more about Hoag’s NICU, please click here.
Postpartum Unit and Transitional Nursery
The 49-bed postpartum unit is a sanctuary for new families to recover and bond. Hoag had adopted a policy of “non-separation” and newborns room-in with their mothers in the spacious family-centered postpartum rooms.
The nursery is primarily used as a transitional nursery for examinations by a baby’s physician and for circumcisions.
