Expert Medical Staff & Techniques
Metro Health Hospital’s board-certified physicians, specialists and nursing staff at the Spartan Stores Family Childbirth Center are highly trained to care for you and your baby.
Our expert team has the latest knowledge and skills needed to provide quality care throughout your pregnancy and during and after labor. We can also provide immediate access to specialized newborn care if needed.
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. Because touch is a very important part of a newborn’s growth and development, this technique often provides healing to a newborn with these symptoms.
You can rest assured that we take every precaution to keep your baby safe and secure. HUGS tag transmitters will alert the staff if your baby is in an inappropriate area and help keep your baby 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.
