Growing services for women and infants

Thursday, May 9, 2019 | Women's & Children's

The third floor of the new Bayhealth Hospital, Sussex Campus houses the Center for Women and Infants and the Obstetrical Emergency Department (OBED). The unit has Labor, Delivery, Recovery, and Postpartum (LDRP) rooms, where patients stay in the same room from admission to discharge, and 24/7 coverage by board-certified OB physicians. There are also exciting enhancements in terms of patient experience and care.

Huge rooms

The six LDRP rooms provide plenty of space for family bonding and accommodating the Baby-Friendly® practice of rooming-in.

Great amenities

Each LDRP room has large windows with beautiful views, a sleeper sofa and a 52-inch television, and there is also a separate Family Lounge and private space for lactation consultation.

Increased security

Along with being protected by the Hugs & Kisses infant security system, the floor is locked. Staff has badge access and patients, families and other visitors must be checked in.

Easier access to operating room

The Operating Room is located just below on the second floor, providing quick and easy access for those patients requiring a C-section.


The OBED provides specialized care for women who need it. The OBED at Bayhealth Hospital, Sussex Campus has one semi-private and two private rooms. The OBED is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and is staffed with a boardcertified OB-GYN doctor and an experienced OB registered nurse.
