South Shore University Hospital (SSUH) in Bay Shore, New York, has opened its $71m Women and Children’s Center.
The 45,560ft², two-storey facility has been established within the SSUH to provide specialised medical care for women and children.
It features a comprehensive labour and delivery suite, private post-partum suites, two operating rooms and obstetrical-triage beds, a post-anaesthesia recovery unit (PACU) and an all-private neonatal intensive care unit (NICU).
The centre has 29 postpartum suites, all of which are housed in the James and Gina Nazzaro Maternity Unit.
Each suite is equipped with private bathrooms, closets and modern amenities such as LCD flat-screen televisions, recliners and sofas that convert into pull-out beds.
The maternity unit is supported by four new triage beds, which are available at all times and staffed by dedicated obstetricians and nurses.

The NICU covers more than 6,300ft² and is dedicated to the care of critically ill and premature infants.
It currently has 11 rooms, with plans to increase this to 16, and features up-to-date medical technology for newborn care.
Parents are given pull-out beds in each room, while the mother-baby unit offers room service with a diverse menu to allow mothers to order meals at their convenience.
SSUH has also introduced two new operating rooms for women’s health procedures. These include a da Vinci surgical system for robotic-assisted, minimally invasive gynaecologic surgeries.
SSUH executive director Irene Macyk said: “This new facility not only represents a commitment to providing exceptional care for mothers and newborns but also signifies a dedication to fostering a nurturing environment where the journey into parenthood is supported with compassion and medical expertise.
“The commitment Northwell Health has made to the people of Suffolk County is incredible and we know you will find our hospital to be a wonderful place to have a baby and receive superior care for both mother and child.”
