Welcome to Women’s Health at Coffee Regional Medical Center!

At Coffee Regional Medical Center’s Women’s Health/Labor & Delivery Unit, our mission is to deliver exceptional care, support, comfort, and compassion to all our women’s health patients.

Here, women will find all the resources they need for all ages and stages of life!

Labor & Delivery Unit

Our newly renovated mother and baby unit is designed to ensure the comfort and care of our mothers, babies, and family members! Our beautifully designed birthing suites offer safety and comfort to our families, allowing our mothers to labor, deliver, and remain in the comfort of our spacious suites. In addition, each suite offers a full bathroom, a bed for the guest, and a large picture window for beautiful views of our campus.  Our chef ensures that each birth is celebrated with a special steak dinner, offered to Mom & Dad during their stay.

We encourage you to “Room-In” with your baby during your hospital stay. Rooming-In with your baby promotes bonding and increases breastfeeding success rates. Your baby may remain in your room except for a few quick trips to the nursery for health screenings by our nursery staff and your Pediatrician.

We feature 6 Labor & Delivery rooms as well as 5 Women’s Health rooms. We also have a Level 1 Nursery connected to our Women’s Health Unit.

Our highly trained labor & delivery staff work closely with your physician to ensure the safety of both mother and baby. We will guide and support the mother and her support person through the birthing process. If a cesarean section (C-section) is required, the support person may accompany the mother to the operating room unless an emergent condition prevents it.

In addition to the physician, there are two mid-level providers on staff that work exclusively in the labor & delivery unit as an extension to your labor nurses. Our Nurse Practitioners are trained in Electronic Fetal Heart Rate Monitoring. We are proud to offer this expertise to our expecting mothers as this provides an additional layer of care for the baby during the delivery process. Your physician, however, will still deliver the baby when it’s time.

Our highly trained labor & delivery staff work closely with your physician to ensure the safety of both mother and baby. If you have questions regarding your delivery, please reach out to us at (912) 384-1900 ext 2380.

Support

Mammography

Your best chance of surviving breast cancer is early detection. Thanks to the efforts of the CRMC Foundation and the generosity of our donors and community, CRMC offers 3D Mammography technology. This improves the early detection of breast cancer and ultimately saves lives. A mammogram is an imaging test that must be ordered by your physician. This service is offered through our radiology team, who performs mammograms, breast biopsies, ultrasound images, and bone density testing. To find out more, call (912) 383-5682.

Annual FREE breast cancer screening is offered by CRMC. These screenings are held in October of each year, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. To find out more about the annual screening event, call CRH Oncology Group at (912) 384-4111
