Kennewick General Hospital Opens New Birthing Suites

Posted: Updated:


Kennewick General Hospital celebrates the opening of five new state of the art birthing suites.

The completion of the new rooms marks the end of the second stage of a three phase process to expand the family birthing center at KGH.

Not only are the rooms technologically advanced but they were designed with the comforts of home in mind to make the birthing process just a little less stressful.

"There's a combination of comfort and function that they're here, they're comfortable, they feel like they're in a hotel room but then everything they need for their medical needs is right here," says Dr. Gregory Schroff. 

With the new rooms finished all that remains in the project is to remodel the existing birthing suites which should be done by february of 2010.
