Adena is a Safe Sleep Hospital, an initiative of the Ohio Hospital AssociationOur highly trained medical providers, many certified in their area of expertise, are here to share in your most meaningful experience. From our new homelike environment to our collaboration with specialists from Nationwide Children’s Hospital and Ohio State University, our aim is to make your childbirth experience safe, comfortable, and memorable. That’s why many women rank us in the top 90th percentile of hospitals nationwide for patient satisfaction.

Built in 2010, Adena’s Women and Children’s Center was designed with input from doctors, nurses, and women just like you. It includes:

Seven homelike suites designed so you stay in one place for labor, delivery, and recovery. The LDR suites have a private bathroom, state-of-the-art equipment for you and your newborn, as well as a recliner so your loved one can stay in comfort throughout your labor and delivery.

Two dedicated surgical suites within the unit for patients scheduled for a cesarean section or in the event that during the labor process a c-section delivery becomes necessary. All areas are staffed by the same friendly faces that have taken care of you during your labor.

Our postpartum unit was designed to accommodate your whole family and keep you comfortable and connected throughout your stay. With free wireless Internet, a fold-out couch, and plenty of space for your infant to stay in the room, it’s the perfect place for you to bond as a new family.

Our Level II Special Care Nursery is staffed with many certified neonatal nurses. This area is equipped to provide exceptional care for infants born as early as 32 weeks. One of the most comforting things about the nursery is the clinical excellence and advanced technology, including bedside monitoring and specialized cribs for premature infants that simulate the uterine environment and provide a warm, healing, low-stress experience. We also have telemedicine equipment that allows our physicians instant access to specialists at Nationwide Children’s Hospital. Providing top-notch, high-quality care is the main focus of our Level II nursery. We also have a well-baby nursery staffed with the same nurses and physicians who will provide care to your infant while you get some much-needed sleep.
