Exceptional Maternity Care

Oh, baby! Inspira Health providing exceptional maternity care across South Jersey
By John DiAngelo, Inspira Health President and CEO

At Inspira, we're committed to providing the best care possible for every person in our community - from the oldest to the youngest and the mothers-to-be. Taking good care of mothers-to-be and their babies throughout pregnancy and after birth is especially important to me - I'm proud to say I've raised three kids and they've gone on to have kids of their own. 

Inspira's maternity services have always been a focus of our health system; we welcome about 3,000 babies into this world each year. More than ever before, we're focused on compassionate care of mothers-to-be that makes bringing new life into this world as comfortable and safe as possible. No matter the type of birth experience a woman wants, Inspira can, quite literally, deliver it.

Our maternity services throughout the network are acclaimed. We offer plenty of classes to help you prepare for a new addition to your family; our network of more than 150 access points across South Jersey makes it easier to get maternity care during your pregnancy. And when it's time to welcome your new family member, our medical centers offer an experience that's the best in the region.

Inspira Medical Center Elmer was the first hospital in New Jersey and the Delaware Valley to earn the prestigious Baby-Friendly designation, which helps put baby on the best path to growing healthy and strong from the time he or she is born. It's also the only medical center in the region to offer water births in a hospital setting - so mother and baby can be comfortable during birth, and have the peace of mind that exceptional medical care is nearby if needed. In addition, Inspira Elmer has received a national Women's Choice Award for Obstetrics and the highest scores possible for maternity quality standards by The Leapfrog Group, an independent organization that collects and reports health data to help patients make decisions about their care.

At Inspira Medical Center Vineland, we have the regional Deborah F. Sager Neonatal Intensive Care Unity. And the adjoining Ronald McDonald Family Room offers a place for new parents and family members to stay overnight while their baby is in the NICU. Vineland also features a pediatric ER, where children can get emergency care that's specialized just for them.

Inspira Medical Center Mullica Hill, which is set to open later this year, will offer midwife and obstetrician services and an exceptional maternity experience from the time you're admitted to the time you take your baby home. The new hospital features large, family-friendly labor, delivery, recovery, and postpartum rooms, which allows mothers to stay comfortably in one place during their stay. There's also room for partners to stay, private bathrooms and showers, and all of the latest technology to ensure that baby's arrival and first few days of life are safe. 

Our partnership with Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for children brings neonatal, pediatric and emergency care for children to our hospitals. Teaming up with Nemours helps us bring a higher level of care to our families.

We're committed to caring for everyone in our community - even before they're born. If you are expecting, our physicians, nurses and staff have been working tirelessly to ensure you have an outstanding maternity and birth experience close to home here in South Jersey.
