Dignity Health is well-known for its commitment to exceptional care of mothers and their newborns. We believe birth isn't just a procedure, but a joyful family experience.
Best Pediatric Care
You can rest assured you are receiving the best care at Northridge Hospital. The Los Angeles Daily News readers voted us "Best Pediatric Care", plus Healthgrades named us a Five-Star Recipient for Maternity Care for 7 Years in a Row. Parents choose Northridge Hospital to deliver their newborn where there’s an entire floor dedicated solely to the birthing experience. Our program offers an extensive series of expectant parent classes, a baby portrait, online nursery service and more.
Our maternity suites are beautifully furnished and decorated for a “homelike” feel. Soft colors, wood floors and coordinating bedding offer a comfortable, yet highly functional and nurturing room for your stay. Behind the beautiful cabinets is advanced equipment that can be accessed should the need arise during delivery.
We are here to help. Call 818.885.5434 for answers about our Family Birth Center.
Although Hospital staff is always present, the rooms provide a home-like atmosphere with warm soothing colors, wood floors and medical equipment stored out of sight in the room’s custom wood cabinetry.
Private Birth Suites
The Labor-Delivery- Recovery (LDR) suites allow you to remain in one room during all phases of your labor and delivery.
We encourage baby to stay with you in your room from birth to discharge.
