To keep you, your family, your baby and our staff safe during the pandemic, WHS has made a few changes to our guidelines on this unit.

This is what you can expect:

— Visitation is currently limited.

  • For deliveries, one partner/support person is allowed to stay with mom, 24/7.
  • We ask that your partner/support person comes prepared with clothes, toiletries, etc. We ask they remain in the room with you throughout your stay. Complimentary meals, coffee and snacks will also be provided for you and your support person.
  • Additionally you or your partner/support person are NOT permitted to leave the unit to smoke. A nicotine patch will be provided to you if needed. Your partner should come prepared as well.
  • All patients must follow the current visitor guidelines: Visit our COVID website section for the most up-to-date guidelines.

— Prenatal classes are currently offered in person, and online options are available for those who may not feel comfortable with in-person classes at this time. Visit our website for the most up-to-date guidelines.

— In-room photography by Bella Baby is currently postponed to reduce the number of people in and out of the hospital. For interested parents, we can provide you with information for an at-home session with Bella Baby. Visit babybellaphotography.com for more information.

You can rest assured that we are following all CDC and Pennsylvania regulations and guidelines. You can visit whs.org/safe to read about the WHS Safe Care Commitment. If you have additional questions, please contact the unit at (724) 225-7000.
