The Care You Deserve

Adding to your family is one of the most exciting days of your life, and the Labor & Delivery Staff at Franklin Foundation Hospital is happy to share in those memories with you. Offering one-on-one care, we believe in providing the best in quality and comfort for mom and her family.

All of our nurses are certified in ACLS (Advanced Cardiac Life Support), NRP (Neonatal Resuscitation Program), and AWHONN Fetal Monitoring. We also provide assistance for breastfeeding mothers.

Each of our private suites provides a quaint, home-like atmosphere, with a spacious design that allows mom to labor and deliver in the same room.  After delivery, new babies are allowed to stay with mom as much as possible.
