We provide comprehensive maternity services, women's surgical care, specialty services, and a wide variety of educational programs.
Nearly 4,000 babies are born each year at Women & Babies Hospital—more than any other hospital in Lancaster County.

Our facility includes:
- A Labor and Delivery unit dedicated to your personalized birth plan
- A Couplet Care unit where mothers and babies are cared for together in one private room
- Newborn care from rounding pediatric and family medicine practices; screenings for hearing and genetic disorders
- A 29-bed advanced Level IIIB Neonatal Intensive Care unit (NICU) staffed 24/7 by teams from Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia

- Bladder and pelvic floor disorders
- Cervical and uterine cancer
Giving to Women & Babies Hospital
Beyond providing exceptional care, there are other ways we are able to help those we serve. With the support of our community, we implement programs and offer support in ways that directly impact and improve the quality of life for women and children. Community funding makes it possible for us to care for patients during a time of need, offer state-of-the-art equipment, and educate the next generation of compassionate, highly-trained medical professionals. Learn about giving opportunities.
In addition, we invite you, your family and friends to celebrate the arrival of your baby by adding his or her name to our “A Star Is Born” celebration wall. When we receive your tax deductible contribution, we will etch the honored baby’s name and birth date on a gold star and hang it in a special location at Women & Babies Hospital. Order a star.
