Hutcheson Medical Center announces that it will suspend Labor and Delivery services as of noon on Tuesday, Dec. 31.
Mothers and babies who are still in the nursery on Dec. 31 at noon will be transferred to other facilities that provide the same level of care, such as Erlanger East and ParkRidge East. The physicians involved with providing care at Hutcheson will work with the mothers to determine the best facility to which to transfer the infant.
Consistent with federal law, Hutcheson’s Emergency Department will provide emergency care to treat and stabilize mothers with pregnancy-related medical conditions, followed by ambulance transfer to a qualified hospital facility with OB services if appropriate. Area EMS providers have been notified of Hutcheson’s Labor & Delivery suspension of services.
