A More Inviting Place for New Moms

As the first facility in North Texas dedicated exclusively to caring for mothers and their babies, the Margot Perot Center at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas enjoys a reputation for excellence built throughout its 25 years of service. Now, the Center’s rooms are being renovated to better complement the level of care patients receive.

Semi-private rooms on the fourth and fifth floors of the Margot Perot Center are being
transformed into private suites, and all private rooms are being updated in order to provide new moms and families with the quiet moments they need after a baby’s birth. Renovations began in March and are expected to be complete by early December.

“We want the rooms and décor at the Margot Perot Center to reflect the level of care that patients receive here,” says Julie M. Hagood, M.D., obstetrician/gynecologist on the medical staff at Texas Health Dallas. “When the renovations are complete, patients will be able to choose from private rooms, suites or deluxe suites.”

All renovated rooms will receive new bathroom tile, vanity tops, paint, furniture and flat-screen televisions. The suites will be larger than regular private rooms and will include hospitality features such as a microwave, refrigerator and coffeemaker. Once the renovations are complete, the Margot Perot Center will house 130 beds, including 24 beds in the Women’s Surgical Unit in the Jackson Building.

“I’m looking forward to women and their families being able to enjoy their stays in our beautifully updated private rooms and suites,” says Deb Maitre, R.N.-C., M.S., director of Women and Infants Services at Texas Health Dallas. “I’m thrilled that the rooms will again reflect the quality and service provided to women and infants at the Margot Perot Center.”
