Mother/Baby Unit re-opens Monday

Ellen Byars
Clinical Nurse II, Unit 4-3 Mother/Baby

At Durham Regional, we’re committed to providing the best care for every patient, every time. Part of that commitment involves working to continually improve our patients’ experience by renovating the hospital. Renovations are nearly complete for Unit 4-3 Mother/Baby and gynecology services.  

By noon Monday, January 28, patients and their loved ones will be enjoying the beautiful new space. Patient rooms feature soothing new wall colors and curtains along with many other stylish updates, making this a special place for families to welcome their little ones.

Patient rooms have

  • increased square footage
  • new windows and HVAC units
  • glass tile-accented bathrooms with Americans with Disabilities Act-approved toilets
  • updated lighting fixtures

In addition, patients’ loved ones will enjoy multiple sleeping options, including recliners and futon-style benches in the rooms. The renovations also include a self-service nutrition area so patients can help themselves to snacks, ice and drinks as well as access to a refrigerator and microwave.
