About Women & Babies Hospital
Lancaster General Health Women & Babies Hospital is a family-centered hospital and, unlike any hospital in the region, focuses completely on the healthcare needs of women.
Since opening in 2000, physicians and midwives at Women & Babies Hospital have delivered more babies – more than 4,000 each year – than any other hospital in Lancaster County. Our maternity services include a labor and delivery unit, couplet care, nurseries and the county’s first Level III neonatal intensive care unit.
In addition, the hospital is comprised of several pavilions that allow women to visit their physician, see a specialist, get a lab test or undergo both inpatient or outpatient surgery, all under one roof.
On-site services include outpatient diagnostic and laboratory testing, day surgery and inpatient surgery, including a dedicated da Vinci® robotic surgery program, specialty clinics, and physical therapy services specific to women.
As part of Lancaster General Hospital, the Women & Babies Hospital nursing staff is among the few in the nation to be recognized three times for achieving recognition as a Magnet hospital for nursing excellence.
Our commitment to best practices of care that support breastfeeding, family bonding and a healthy transition at birth has earned Women & Babies Hospital the distinction of being the first hospital in Pennsylvania to earn the Baby-Friendly® hospital designation. This international award recognizes birth facilities that offer breastfeeding mothers the information, confidence and skills to successfully initiate and continue breastfeeding their babies.
The hospital is located on Good Drive and near the Lancaster General Health Suburban Outpatient Pavilion, close to the intersection of Harrisburg Pike and Rohrerstown Road in East Hempfield Township.
