“Hospitals play a vital role in helping mothers and babies get off to a healthy start,” said Sequoia Hospital President Bill Graham. “To be recognized seven years in a row by our Bay Area parents is an honor, and also a testament to our dedication to providing the best birth experience possible.”
The Sequoia Hospital Birth Center offers an array of services and comforts, including all private rooms with en suite bathrooms, 24-hour anesthesiologist and OB physician coverage, on-site Level II neonatal intensive care unit staffed by experts from Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford, and breastfeeding support from our International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) nurses during the hospital stay and through the crucial early weeks after birth.
“Sequoia Hospital Birth Center provides the advanced care and latest technology you expect from a leading medical facility, but in a personalized community hospital setting,” said Jennifer Doran, RN, BSN, director of Perinatal Services for Sequoia Hospital. “Time and again, parents who choose Sequoia remark on the unique combination of expertise and humankindness they encounter.”
