 Department Information

 

In 2010, a significant investment was made for special services designed for the mother, newborn and special care unit at the Ziv Medical Center. Today, this department is completely modern and furnished with the most up-to-date equipment. Much thought has gone into the creation of the 7 new air conditioned delivery rooms, each fully equipped with private toilet and shower. The two natural delivery rooms, designed like hotel rooms, include a jacuzzi and wireless monitors.

The dedicated staff gives personal attention to each patient and creates an atmosphere of reverence. This allows the mother-to-be a complete and successful experience, enhancing the transition from pregnancy to birth into one of safety, security and comfort.

The new mother has a choice of either rooming-in with her newborn or putting the baby in the nursery, according to her desire and ability. Here at Ziv Medical Center, we encourage all expectant mothers to meet with a midwife from our staff to consult about her pregnancy and childbirth expectations.

Planning in advance clarifies the way in which she and her partner wish to experience this moment; from arrival to the delivery room in labor, to delivery, maternity ward, baby care and finally discharge. We view birthing as a natural experience and do our utmost in creating a natural and relaxed atmosphere for mother and her family, together with strict monitoring of the status of mother and fetus. If requested, we provide pain medication or alternative methods and offer training in many topics. There is a maternity club incorporating a range of activities, meeting the changing needs of the emerging stages of pregnancy, birth and the baby's first year. The Ob/Gyn department also offers special services to the ultra orthodox patients.

The neonatal special care unit hospitalizes infants born preterm or with low birth weight and those suffering from particular problems, mainly respiratory, cardiac or blood and need special monitoring and intensive care. Staff for this unit includes doctors and nurses who were specially trained to treat these infants, as well as doctors and consultants from various specialties. Social workers and a contact nurse help the parents and family if any serious personal problems arise during hospitalization.

The center for woman's health includes services in urogynecology, cervical clinic, gynecological oncology clinic; hysteroscopy clinic; high-risk clinic; defects and advanced ultrasound unit. The center also provides genetic counseling.
