birthing

BEST BIRTHING CENTER: HOAG HOSPITAL

There’s a wealth of reasons that Hoag Hospital won for best birthing center. Perhaps it’s because the birthing center at Hoag hospital includes an advanced fetal diagnostic testing unit to monitor the health of both mother and her unborn baby and a seven-bed antepartum unit for women who require hospitalization prior to labor. Or could it be that the center also has 18 fully equipped labor, delivery, and recovery suites? Maybe it’s because the hospital hosts three dedicated operating rooms for women who need to undergo a cesarean section. Whatever the reason, it’s clear that when it comes to birthing centers in the OC area, Hoag Hospital is unparalleled.
