Update: Flu season has begun and the hospital has started to enforce its flu restrictions on the Labor& Delivery and Post-Partum floors of the Women's Hospital. In an effort to keep moms and newborn babies protected from infection, children ages 11 years and younger will not be allowed upstairs to the Labor & Delivery and Post-Partum units. Also, we will not be offering Sibling Tours during the time of the restriction that will be going on from now until February/March of 2018. Thank you for your consideration.
