Culpeper Regional Hospital announced the opening of a new operating suite with the latest in equipment and technology designated for obstetric (OB) patients who require cesarean births.
“We are very pleased to have this additional operating room capacity, tailored for our OB patients,” said operating room director Laurie Maney. “Our goal is to offer compassionate and safe care to all of our patients and their families and to have healthy moms and babies.”
Located next to the Family Birth Center, the state-of-the-art operating room allows for OB and OR staff to perform emergency c-sections, which must be done immediately, as well as scheduled procedures. Along with streamlined and efficient usage, other amenities include additional privacy within the OB unit and its generous size, which provides patients and their loved ones a more comfortable birthing environment.
