The WakeMed system opens its new Women's Hospital today. The system's fifth hospital adjoins two other main buildings on WakeMed's Raleigh campus.
The 61-bed women's hospital offers private delivery and bed rooms, lactation specialists, and postpartum care, says spokeswoman Debbie Laughery.
"And we know that comfort in a calming environment leads to healing. So, if we can bring the quality care together in a tranquil environment, we believe the outcomes will be better."
The women's hospital also offers general surgery, urology, gynecology and mammography services.
