Fairhope, AL (PRWEB) February 08, 2016
“We have nearly met our goal of $6 million for the new birth center at Thomas Hospital,” said State Farm agent Tim Simmonds, who is also the chairman of the Thomas Hospital Foundation. “To date we have $5.7 million, and construction will begin this March.”
Thomas Hospital, in Fairhope, serves more babies than any other of the surrounding hospitals. The goal of its new, state-of-the-art concierge birthing center is to accommodate projected birth rates in Baldwin County, which is the fastest-growing county in Alabama, providing more bed and nursery space to handle the projected growth. In order to serve the growing population, the “Life...It’s Worth Giving” capital campaign is seeking to raise money to support the creation of the new birth center.
The new birth center will increase from 18,000 to 28,000 square feet, improving the capacity by more than 30 percent. It will include four private triage rooms, six labor and delivery rooms, an operating room, two mother and baby recovery beds and sixteen private postpartum rooms.
“Once complete, Thomas Hospital will have a cutting-edge facility for women’s care,” said Simmonds. “The facility will address the needs of a mother-to-be and provide care during the birth of a child through pediatric care, and all of a mother’s medical needs.”
