NH&C celebrates the beginning of two big expansion projects on the hospital campus: The Birth Center, and the Northfield Clinic and Women’s Health Center.
The Birth Center expansion will add another labor & delivery room, a tub for water births, a dedicated surgical suite for cesarean sections, and more family-centered patient rooms. This expansion lets the Birth Center accommodate more births at the same time, as more families across the region choose Northfield Hospital to welcome their babies. This expansion will be complete in July 2020. All services will continue during construction.
At the same time, expansion of the Northfield Clinic and the Women’s Health Center will add exam rooms and remodel current space to give people more access to care, with more appointment times available and more providers to choose from. This expansion will be complete in April 2020. All services will continue during construction. (Please plan extra time for parking.)
“We’re proud of our growth as a regional medical center,” says NH+C CEO Steve Underdahl. “As communities around us grow, and more people choose NH+C for their care, we’re poised to meet the growing demand for expert, personalized care close to home.”
