At the Spartan Stores Family Childbirth Center at Metro Health Hospital, our board-certified physicians, specialists, and nursing staff are highly trained to care for you and your baby. Our expert team has the latest knowledge and skill in providing care during and after labor and delivery, as well as throughout your pregnancy. We can also provide immediate access to specialized newborn care, if needed.
Touch is a very important part of a newborn’s growth and development – even right after birth. We are proud to be the only hospital in Grand Rapids to offer Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment (OMT), a process where physicians use their hands to examine and treat a newborn experiencing problems such as anxiety, pain, breathing or feeding difficulties. This technique often provides the healing touch to a newborn with these symptoms.
Our security measures are top notch – HUGS tag transmitters alert staff if your baby is in an appropriate area and makes sure your baby is safe at all times. And our advanced electronic medical record system ensures that your care provider has access to your medical history and crucial information at a moment’s notice.
