Coronavirus Update: Our maternity support groups are now being held online during their regularly scheduled times and days. Some OB classes are also available online. For class availability and registration, please check our online registration. In-person tours remain cancelled until further notice.
When it's once again safe, we'll encourage in-person tours as you get to meet some of our compassionate staff and nurses. At the in-person tour, you can ask questions about prenatal care, birth plans, and delivery options. You will view our spacious, private birthing suites and dedicated private postpartum rooms, learn what to bring to the hospital, where to register for delivery and participate in a group question and answer session.
All tours are FREE and no registration is required. The Birthing Center tours are held on the first and third Sunday of every month and begin at 1:00, 2:00 and 3:00 p.m., in the Mercy Conference Room (diagonally across from Starbucks in the main lobby). For more information, call (602) 406-3521. *No tours will occur when the Sunday falls on a holiday weekend, i.e., May 28, Memorial Day, July 2, Independence Day, or September 3, Labor Day weekend.
