Blue Distinction Center Obstetrics & Gynecology in Walker County

Women's Health Services

The Women's Health Services (WHS) unit is located on the second floor of Huntsville Memorial Hospital and features birthing suites, a nursery and gynecology surgery recovery areas. The unit is dedicated to serving the women of Walker and surrounding counties. Specifically designed for obstetrical and gynecology surgical recovery, the WHS unit is staffed with professionals who deal with the medical and educational needs of the female surgical patient. After surgery, patients staying in the hospital are moved to a room in the Women's Unit, where their specialized care continues.

Maternity Services

The Women's Health Services (WHS) unit features five private birthing suites, where mothers can labor, deliver and recover all in one room. After a baby is born, they are observed and bathed in the mother's room to promote bonding. From this point forward, the baby stays in the mother's room throughout the hospital stay.

"Rooming-in" is required by the Nursing unit for the purpose of infant care education and maternal/family bonding. Perinatal nurses continually monitor mothers and babies during hospitalization. Newborns return to the nursery only for lab tests and necessary medical care.

Infant hearing testing is conducted on all newborn babies. The Otoacoustic Emissions Testing (OAE) provides physicians with information concerning any possible hearing problems a newborn might have.
