Women’s Pavilion at Johnston Health

womens-pavilionThe birth of your child is the most special time of your life. Our obstetric family is eager to help you and your family have the best experience possible. That’s why we created our Women’s Pavilion. The Pavilion has five labor and delivery suites, 16 postpartum rooms and 17 nursery beds. In a newly decorated reception area, family members and friends can wait in comfort, enjoy complementary apples and see the newborns through a nursery window. The goal of the Women’s Pavilion is to create an inviting environment and improve the quality of your stay.

Our staff is specially trained to care for both you and your infant. Last year alone, we delivered 1,300 babies. Patients have consistently given our staff high scores on Press Ganey surveys, which measure quality of service and care.

Our support extends beyond the delivery room. To prepare moms, dads and siblings-to-be for the arrival of a newborn, our nurse educators offer the following classes:

  • Childbirth education
  • Parenting
  • Breastfeeding
  • Sibling preparation
  • Infant CPR

If you would like to tour the Women’s Pavilion, please call us. Come prepared to ask questions.

  1. You really should consider repainting the awning above the women’s pavilion. Everyone tells you to go to the green awning but there is that gigantic green awning at the entrance in the back of the hospital, by comparison calling the one over the women’s pavilion entrance “the green awning” is a joke. Given that it is the entrance to the women’s pavilion why not go with pink or purple to avoid confusion. The first time I ever visited tell women’s pavilion was the night I was being induced and as if that’s not nerve wracking enough I went into the back entrance under what I assumed would be the only green awning at the hospital. Then as if I wasn’t anxious enough my husband and I couldn’t find the correct green awning (which is actually gray) causing us to argue, definitely not the mood i wanted to be in as I began the process of delivering a baby. As for the rest of our experience despite arriving on time for my induction my husband and I sat in the waiting room for about an hour before we actually got into our room. The nurses and phlebotimists were in and out about every 45 minutes making it impossible for me to rest meaning I was exhausted before even beginning the difficult parts of labor. I know the nurses have to check on you every so often but why in the world did the phlebotimists have to take blood, I kid you not, 5 times throughout the night? I ended up having to have a c-section which went well however I was clear to all involved I wanted to breastfeed and I had to wait over 4 hours before my baby was brought to me, which is ridiculous given how important it is to establish that connection as soon as possible. I called the nursery twice and was told both times that she would be brought to me soon. The only saving grace of my experience here were my labor and delivery nurses. Faith and Nicole were a God send and I honestly don’t know how I would’ve made it through that day without them. Whatever you guys are paying them it isn’t enough, they are truly amazing!
