To meet the growing demands of a modern labor and delivery department, HealthPartners added a four-story, 160,000 SF Family Birth Center to the southeast corner of Regions Hospital campus. The new building features a new public entry, training center, community education room, family lounge, family courtyard, guest suites, playrooms, nutrition, ten post-partum rooms, four antepartum rooms, seven labor and delivery (LDR) rooms, two water boutique rooms, five couplet care rooms, a newborn observation room, eight NICU suites, two ORs, triage rooms, pre-op, and nursing stations. The new addition also includes extensive staff break rooms, on-call suites, offices, conference rooms, public meeting space, and support space. Renovations on the multiple floors of Regions Hospital were required to accommodate the hospital connection. A skyway connects the new Birth Center to a 40-car parking area. The project was designed with provisions for future vertical expansion to a total of 11 floors.
