San Antonio, TX (PRWEB) January 23, 2013

North Central Baptist Hospital (NCBH) is bursting at the seams with babies, leading to a major expansion project at the hospital. “We are single-handedly populating the earth” said NCBH president Bill Waechter at recent “sky breaking” ceremony. “Stone Oak continues to see double digit growth of women of child bearing age. “We’ve outgrown our current facility so we’re expanding in order to keep up with the growing need for women’s services in this area,” says Waechter.

The new floors will expand Labor & Delivery, Postpartum and Anti-Partum beds, the OB pre-op/recovery area, Nursery & Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) beds and Outpatient areas. “New moms and dads love the large, beautiful private rooms and boutique, world class care they get when they deliver here at North Central Baptist,” said Waechter. “We’re excited about this expansion, which will allow more special beginnings to take place here.”

The expansion will create more than 200 new healthcare jobs, including labor delivery nurse jobs, in the North Central San Antonio area. North Central Baptist is keeping construction work local with contractors JE Dunn and Joeris and subcontractors Brandt and Enterprise Electric.
Construction began June 2012 and is expected to be complete in October of 2013.
