Texas Health Flower Mound Named 'Best Place to Have a Baby'

FLOWER MOUND, Texas — Just a few weeks into the new year, Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Flower Mound has received an award. Readers of North Texas Child magazine named the hospital the "Best Place to Have a Baby."

The award is part of the magazine’s annual “Best for Moms and Babies” section, published in the February issue, which recognizes the top local services, products and resources for expecting mothers and newborns. Winners were selected based upon online votes from readers.

"The birth of a child is one of life’s greatest moments and we go to great lengths to ensure the experience is calm, comfortable and safe for the mother, baby and entire family,” said Spencer Turner, president of Texas Health Flower Mound, noting physicians are on-site 24/7 to provide complete anesthesia care in labor and delivery. “We realize people have a choice of where they receive healthcare and we are honored when they choose us for such an important event in their lives.”

The Women and Infants Unit is comprised of an experienced and dedicated team of perinatal and neonatal nurses, 17 OB/GYN physicians, two certified nurse midwives and a maternal fetal medicine specialist. All of them provide uncompromising and highly personal care to each birthing mother before, during and after delivery.

In addition to eight uniquely designed birthing suites and two fully equipped cesarean delivery suites, Texas Health Flower Mound offers a well-appointed postpartum suite for the new family to get acquainted after the baby’s birth.

In the event of premature labor or other medical issues, the Special Care Nursery monitors high-risk, pre-term and sick newborns and is staffed with highly qualified neonatal nurses, respiratory therapists, neonatologists and certified neonatal nurse practitioners.

Once the bundle of joy arrives, new parents are treated to a “celebration meal” created by the hospital’s in-house chef, along with in-room photography sessions to commemorate the occasion. Parent education classes are taught on-site by the nursing staff. Also, an Outpatient Lactation Clinic will be introduced in 2014, where moms may seek assistance with breastfeeding and hospital-grade pumps will be available for rent.

“The nurses and staff of Women and Infant Services take great pride and pleasure in their work and ensuring that each of our families receives personalized and exceptional care. Our focus is on preparing our families for a successful parenting journey. We look forward to serving our future families and are thankful for the honor bestowed by families who have already shared their birth experience with us,” said Deborah Cates, R.N., director of Women and Infant Services.
