A Nurturing Place for Families
While you’ve been expecting your new addition to the family, we’ve been looking forward to caring for you at our new Center for Women’s & Children’s Health.
We've Been Expecting You
We guide women and their families through the most important moments of their lives.
The new ChristianaCare Center for Women’s & Children’s Health provides a warm, inviting setting for innovative labor, delivery, and newborn care.
Private NICU Rooms
Designed with sound-absorbing flooring materials, dimmable lighting, and climate-controlled nursery alcoves for calm, quiet surroundings, these single-family rooms offer couplet care for mom and baby bonding and sleep-in space for families.
Spacious, private patient rooms that support couplet care—where new moms and their newborns can stay together. Each room features a sleep-in space for families.
Junior Board Rooftop Garden
The Healing Garden is a welcoming, private area with comfortable outdoor seating and landscaping designed for all seasons. This tranquil space has plenty of room for strollers, children to play, and families to walk together.
Ronald McDonald House Partnership
The Ronald McDonald Family Room provides a place of rest for our families with children in our NICU, and offers services including snacks, coffee, and a reading nook for families with young siblings to enjoy. A monthly dinner for families is also provided by generous donations from the community.
Delaware Estuary Partnership
We are proud to support the Partnership for the Delaware Estuary. The program, one of 28 designated National Estuary Programs in the United States, is working to improve the health of the nation’s estuaries.
State-of-the-Art Labor Lounge
The Labor Lounge is a relaxing, comfortable space for women experiencing the early labor stage of their delivery. Support persons are welcome to stay with mothers in the lounge.
“This investment in the health of the community will provide state-of-the-art, high-quality comprehensive specialty care for women and children across the lifespan and critical care to infants. With the opening of this new building, ChristianaCare will be the only hospital in the region with couplet care in the NICU, keeping moms and babies together.”
