New Britain General campus:
It's one of the most wondrous, complex moments of life, marked by eager anticipation and excitement, yet touched by concern and apprehension.
The Ferdinand Sauer, M.D. Family BirthPlace at the The Hospital of Central Connecticut strives to make each birthing experience as comfortable as possible by offering top-notch medical care and TLC in a beautiful, state-of-the-art facility.
The Family BirthPlace is staffed by board-certified obstetricians, with specialists ready if needed 24 hours a day, including, on-site, board-certified anesthesiologists for pain control and perinatologists for high-risk pregnancies.
New mothers also can be comforted in knowing we universally screen all newborns for hearing loss. The hospital has been screening all newborns since 1996 and was one of the first in the state to provide this important test.
Special Care Nursery
Staffed by neonatologists, the Special Care Nursery offers advanced technology and treatments for babies who are born up to ten weeks early or require special treatment.
When a baby has spent a period of time in the special care nursery and is ready to go home, parents can spend a night or two with their newborn in a transitional room, receiving instruction and getting familiar with their child's needs.
