About The Family Place

Each year, more than 1,000 babies are welcomed to Evangelical’s Maternity Unit, The Family Place. Each new beginning deserves special attention.

The Family Place is dedicated to meeting the unique needs of mothers and babies through the nursing concept of family-centered maternity care.

Our Team

The nurses in The Family Place are skilled in all areas of obstetrical care--from labor and delivery to postpartum care. That means one nurse can take care of mom and her new baby from birth to discharge.

When you decide on The Family Place for the birth of your baby, you can be certain that you've made the right decision for excellent care. The staff of The Family Place is well-trained compassionate professionals who are dedicated to providing personal and quality care to you and your baby.

 You want the finest start for your growing family—choose The Family Place at Evangelical.

Our Facility

At the Family Place, we offer comfortable, pleasant birthing rooms, each with a private bathroom containing a whirlpool tub and shower. In addition to vaginal deliveries, the staff is prepared to handle cesarean births or vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC). Rest assured that whatever your medical needs are at this time, they will be met by the most competent and compassionate staff in the area.

Evangelical Community Hospital has taken steps to increase the security of The Family Place. The Hospital implemented the Hugs Infant Protection system, and limited access to The Family Place through one Degenstein Pavilion/Main Entrance outside of Elevators D and E.

Patient Satisfaction

The staff at The Family Place wants to make your stay with us as pleasant as possible. To find out how we are doing, we participate in the Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction survey. Our patients are asked questions about their comfort and overall impression of our facility after discharge. The responses that we receive are very encouraging! Our obstetrical unit and staff are consistently rated among the best in the region.
