The new Henderson Women’s Center Labor & Delivery includes contemporary Labor & Delivery, Recovery and Postpartum (LDRP) suites, as well as new C-section accommodations.
Phase 1 of the reconstruction of the hospital’s second floor was completed within seven and half months.
Phase Two of the multi-million-dollar project is currently underway. Dr. Kaywin Carter, Ms. Holman’s physician and Director of Women’s Services at St. Luke’s Health-Memorial, said she had no idea her patient would be the first to deliver in the new Center. “It is wonderful. This is an extra special delivery in that I delivered Kandra, and now I have the honor of delivering her daughter,” Carter said. “Delivering in this new unit met all of my expectations. It was just easier, fun working with all of the right equipment. We’ve always had excellent staff, and now we have the infrastructure to go along with that. It’s as good as anything they have in Houston or any of the larger metropolitan areas. St. Luke’s Health-Memorial can now offer everything.”
Phase Two will include a cutting-edge well-baby nursery, new C-section rooms and an ultramodern neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) in partnership with Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston. The NICU features private rooms to provide specialized care and monitoring for premature and/or ill newborns. Phase Two is expected in the summer of 2020.
