The St. Francis NewLife Center features a collaborative environment where patients benefit from the medical expertise of physicians and the holistic health focus of certified nurse midwives. St. Francis has long been committed to providing universal access to affordable, cost-efficient, high-quality, family-centered care.
The birth of your baby is a miraculous and joy-filled event. From selecting a care provider, to preparing for the birth, to your labor, delivery and recovery, St. Francis is ready to provide you and your baby with the best and most technologically advanced care available. And, as always, the talented physicians and dedicated nurses at St. Francis remain true to its legacy of compassionate care that has welcomed thousands of Kansas babies into the world.
The NewLife Center offers birthing suites in which women can experience labor, delivery and recovery all in one room. While the rooms provide a warm, comfortable environment, they also ensure the delivery of high-quality medical care.
A television is in each room, as well as CD/stereo equipment to establish utmost relaxation. Each birthing suite is equipped with a whirlpool bath to make labor more comfortable. Convertible sofa beds are in all rooms for dads and birthing coaches to sleep or rest.
Additionally, each room supplies constant mother and fetal monitoring. The monitoring systems allow 24-hour observation from the nurses' station.
A dedicated cesarean section delivery operating room is adjacent to the birthing suites, offering convenience for patients having surgical deliveries.
The St. Francis NewLife Center has 10 additional rooms for recovering mothers. Five family suites provide a comfortable queen-size bed to allow Mom, Dad and the rest of the family to bond in a homelike environment and offer plenty of room for newborns to bond with their recovering moms, along with ample space for patient care and equipment. The other five rooms offer a comfortable hospital bed and a sofa bed for dads or other family members.
Family Waiting Area
The family waiting area, directly outside the NewLife Center, features comfortable couches and a television for family members and friends awaiting the arrival of a new baby.
